in every respect, breaking no re- 
cords and indicating a condition

Thejhignest temperature of the 
month and the highest reported

ped from a high of 58 to a low of 
54 degrees.

monthly average for the past 63 the 27th and 29th days 

years. The greatest precipitation 
occurred on Sunday and Monday, 
April 25-26, when 2.6 inches fell. 
The height of the storm was 
reached during the burning of the 
Drake and Manney homes late on 
Sunday night. 

Eleven Clear Days 

The highest wind velocity also 
was reached over the same week- 
end, when a blow of 38 miles per 
hour swept in from the east. The 
highest velocity for the period 
covered by records in the Cape 
HHiry WJeathdr Station, C. R. 
White, of the Weather Bureau, re- 
ported, occurred on April 7, 1889, 
when a gale of 80 miles per hour 
was recorded. 

In all. eleven days were clear, 
eight partly cloudy and eleven 
cloudy, with noticeable precipita- 
tion on thirteen days. The sun 
shone for a total of 61 per cent

each group. Captain Nicholas will 
be assisted by a staff of experts 
who will give instruction in the 
duties and routine performance 
of the State Police Force 

Absent Last Year 

This encampment has, been a 
feature of each , spring session at 
Virginia Beach for several years, 
although last year's training 
locale was shifted to Fredericks- 
burg. Upon representations made 
by a delegation of local town of- 
ficials and business men, Mr. 
Rhddes promised that the camp 
would return this year, and the 
first contingent will move into 
their quarters on Sunday 

According to Captain W. B. 
Jackson, resident officer in charge 
of the reservation, the camp is 
booked solidly from this djate 
through late September. Upon the 
completion of the State Police 
training, several hundred cadets 
from 'the John Marshall High 
School, in Richmond, will move 
in for a week, and these will be 
followed by National Guard units

the children have been invited.

year's program will be similar to 
the colorful pageant presented 
last year. Each grade will present 
an individual pageant or stunt, 
and the athletic department of 
the high school will add a series 
of interesting spectacles. In addi- 
tion, the newly organized Safety 
Patrol will participate, presenting 
lessons in bandaging and revival 
of a near-drowned person.

of honor in the May Court last 
year, will preside over the festival

tire day, and special programs 
will be held in the classrooms for 
parents. Featured in the high 
school assembly will be the pre-

fire protection. There is no doubt 
in the minds of the councilmen 
that such protection is necessary 
and deserving of immediate ac- 
tion. How best to accomplish the 
desired result without interfering 
with other proposed and equally 
necessary expenditures is, how- 
ever, a problem of no small pro- 

And yet, we are confident that 
out of the present deliberations 
will come a plan which will assure 
purchase of the necessary fire- 
fighting equipment. Even though 
other funds must be curtailed, 
even though other improvements 
must be laid aside for future ac- 
tion, the matter of adequate fire 
protection cannot be overlooked 
without the fear of tremendous 
loss constantly facing local pro- 
perty owners. The tale of Sunday 
night, April 25, is still a vivid pic- 
ture in the minds of many, and a 
duplicate of that disaster, per- 
haps on a larger scale, is a tale of 
ruin which we would like to see 
eliminated, insofar as such eli- 
mination is possible. 

Adequate fire-fighting appara- 
tus looms equally as important as 
the highly desirable sewage dis- 
posal plant which the council ap- 
proved several months ago.

Although lacking one of its dis- 
tinguished features of past years, 
the presentation of an original 
play by Mary Sinton Leitch, the 
garden party planned for Lawson 
Hall on Saturday by the Woman's 
Club of Princess Anne County is 
certain to live up to the reputa- 
tion for real entertainment that 
has been established in former 
spring seasons. No finer setting 
for a party of the type to be 
given could have been selected 
&im the venerable and beauty- 
fflled gardens which surround the 
attractive home of Mr. and Mrs. 
Charles Hodgman, and the pro- 
gram there to be presented is one 
designed to appeal to many rest- 
dents^oTlhe county and of ad- 
joining Norfolk. 

Too, the recipient of the party 
funds offers another attraction, 
for the proceeds will be given to 
the Tidewater Victory Memorial 
Hospital, to be used for the alle- 
viation of distress among the 
tubercular patients of Princess 
Anne County. In keeping with the 
spirit of the wide social improve- 
ment program which has lever 
characterized the functions of 
the Woman's Club, this gesture 
of assistance to an institution in 
need of public support merits the 
approval and the co-operation of 
all county residents. 

That community is most fortu- 
nate which has within its borders 
an alert, progressive and civic- 
minded organization of the type 
el the Woman's Club. We are 
happy to pay tribute to its ac- 
complishments, to the efforts of 
the off icqrs and members who 
have worked so loyally to achieve 
Its many objectives, and we wish 
them well in their future under- 
takings. The community can do 
no less than offer its enthusias- 
tic support to the Garden Party, 
realizing that from such co-opera- 
tion will come a steady flow of

The News takes this opportunity 
to extend sincere congratulations 
and heartiest good wishes for sue 
cess to the owners and operators 
of the newly constructed Hotel 
Warner. The development of this 
delightful hotel is a distinct ac- 
quisition on the part of Virginia 
Beach, and it offers to the vaca- 
tionist yet another place of ac- 
commodation which meets the ex- 
acting standards of a discriminat- 
ing clientele. 

More hotels of this type are 
needed here. The tempo of Beach

How much truth is there in the recently published report that 
Virginia Beach hotels and cottages, facing what appears to be an 
unusually successful season, are about to boost the tariffs on their 
accommodations to the sky? Since the statement of a general upward 
revision of rates was made in a nearby newspaper several weeks ago, 
we have made a diligent inquiry to determine the extent of such 
action, and, at the conclusion of our investigation, we are privileged 
to brand the statement as an unwarranted falsehood. 

There is now jn the course of preparation in the office of the 
Virginia Beach Chamber of Commerce the annual Hotel and Cottage 
Directory, iisting the accommodations on the Beach and the prices to 
be charged for them. Using this material as a basis for the beginning 
of our investigation, we compared the rates quoted for 1937 with those 
published in last season's edition, and, to our surprise, we found but 
a negligible few houses departing from the rates of last year. Further 
inquiry revealed that in the instances where higher charges were 
anticipated substantial improvements and . renovations had been 
made, fully justifying an increased rate because of the improvement 
of available services. 

So armed, we wandered about the Beach to discuss with hotel 
operators any possible departure from the published schedule. In the 
event of an unusually successful season, we asked, would that sche- 
dule be discarded and higher rates adopted? Were the minimum rates 
quoted mere bits of fiction, or were there rooms available at the pub- 
lished figures? Was there any joker hidden in the plans of the opera- 

"The rates quoted In our report to the Chamber of Commerce for 
inclusion in the Hotel Directory," Operator A asserted, "are those 
which will hold through the entire summer season. In spite of a multi- 
tude of improvements made in this house this spring, the charges 
for the rooms will not vary one cent from those effective last year, 
whatever the prospects for the season or its outcome may be. I read 
the statement that rates for Beach accommodations will be higher,' 
and I am frank to brand that report, so far as this house is concern- 
ed, as a total falsehood. More, I do hot know of any general tendency 
to raise rates among local operators." 

"Why don't you newspaper people take the trouble to find out 
what is true before you publish such outrageous lies?" Another ag- 
grieved hotel man asked. "We have no thought of raising rates this 
year, very few of the hotel people have even considered it, and where 

the report published in- the (the offending newspaper) had its 

origin is beyond me. It doesn't apply here, and I wish you would 
say so." 

"Without a dog track or slot machines to hammer on," still an- 
other operator told us, "it looks as though that 'friendly' newspaper 
is out to cut our throats this season by broadcasting the belief that 
we hotel men are little more than highway robbers. That publicity 
will do us no good, but we'll prove it false by offering the same rates 
that prevailed last, year. Please do what you can to nullify the in- 
fluence of the report and tell prospective vacationists that they can 
continue to find accommodations here at prices which they are ac- 
customed to pay." 

"We're raising our rates this year," said another, "but the in- 
crease per person will not be out of proportion to the money we now 
are spending on improvements. We are jumping out of the cottage 
class and into that of hotels, widening our services, improving our 
rooms and dining facilities and otherwise trying to keep pace with 
the demand for better accommodations. Naturally, we must raiseoux, 
prices some little bit, but the increase isn't brought about by a desire 
to play the 'whole hog' or to take advantage of a good season." 

"Ours is a brand'new adventure/but our prices are in line with 
other accommodations of the same/calibre as offered by this house," 
explained another operator. JpHfrates are not the cheapest dn the 
Beach— you couldn't expect that — but they are in line and they will 
stay in line. We are sick and tired of these rumors of highier prices. 
Why doesn't somebody take the trouble to investigate and learn the 

And so on and one over the entire community. Revenues for the 
present season are running ahead of last year, but the reason doesn't 
lie in higher prices. More, visitors are here, they are demanding bet 
<fter accommodations and they are staying longer. Weekly rates, 
rather than daily charges, are generally requested, and therein lies the 
tale of the early season success for the spring of 1937. 


Nothing moved in my dim house 
Save the shadows there; 

Came a sound that stirred my 
Laughter in the air 

There she stood, her roses' scent

Warm her laughter was and low 

Then, dull was grown.

That was left to me, 
Where my heart leaps unawares 

At a memory. 



Through all the days the sound 

of metal ran — 

The little voices of all broken 

Regretting their demise; the 

Of rusted armour from some 
antique clan; 
The call of wakening bells, more 

stinging than 
The crying of wire where win- 
ter singe. 
Ice-cold the key that in the 

keyhole rings, 
And shrill the restless wheels 
that turn for man. 

But I am longing for the sound 

of silk, 

A sound as pale as pearl, dim as 
a dream 
Where musically-minded rivers 
The sighing wave is at my feet, 
and slow 
The moon comes, with a glam- 
our and a gleam. 
Slippered in satin that is white

As Others See It 


(By the Hon. Patrick H. Drewry, of Virginia) 

A general increase of better than 100 per cent in local hotel and 
business revenues is to be read into a five-year survey of Beach 
activity now being completed by the Chamber of Commerce. With a 
regularity that becomes monotonous as we scan the figures, hotels, 
restaurants, grocery stores, public utilities, confectioneries and other 
shops that have operated here for the past five years reveal that 
business has been doubled in the period under survey, with every in- 
dication pointing to a further expansion in 1937. 

Such barometers of community progress as the bank, the power 
company, the postoffice and similar public agencies report a con- 
stant gain which lends the weight of statistical evidence to fre- 
quently expressed assertions that this is the fastest-growing resort on 
the East Coast. And, if we can accept the first quarter reports for 
this year as an indication of what we may expect for 1937, the rate 
of development is in for a terrific upward surge. 

Thus, in all of 1936, building permits for the Beach area totalled 
$440,000, a figure which came close to establishing an all-time record. 
This year, however, with only four months behind us, that figure has 
been exceeded by an approximate $25,000, and the fall months, 
usually the time of greatest building activity, are still ahead! There 
is no way of checking up on the probable total of expenditures for 
construction projects for the entire year, but it is safe to assert that 
last year's total will be exceeded by not less than 50 per cent. If 
this ics not proof positive "of progress, we have no appreciation of the 

A question frequently asked these days deals with the rate of in- 
quiries received from prospective vacationists as compared with 
former years. Hotels and cottages report a substantial increase in 
their incoming mail, and the same is true of the Beach Chamber of 
Commerce. In March and April alone, that office, revealed, more 
than 600 inquiries were received from a total of 32 states and the 
Dominion of Canada, and the present month threatens to equal the 
total of the last two. Hotel stenographers are working overtime seek- 
ing to keep up with the requests for information, and the major prob- 
lem before the officers of the Chamber of Commerce is not one of 
bringing guests here but of finding accommodations for them when 
they do arrive. 

Barring continuous bad weather, epidemics or the like, it is safe 
to prophecy that Virginia Beach is facing the best season of its his- 
tory. Not alone may the approaching four months be called the 
best from the point of view of the vacation trade but also from the 
improvements to be noted in hotel and cottage accommodations, from 
better amusements and recreational facilities. We may be unduly 
optimistic, but the reports of success he all about us, and we are 
hoping for the best.

The suggestion of the Presi- 
dent that six additional Justices 
be placed on the Supreme Court, 
whether u" intentionally or other- 
wise, makes possible, if the sug- 
gestion be adopted by Congress, 
a serious change in the funda- 
mental form of the Government 
of the United States. . 

The question is not necessarily 
abstruse or obscure. In its final 
analysis, it is easily understood. 
It is admitted that the proposal 
does not call for an interpreta- 
tion of Constitutional law. The 
college president and the man in 
the street may express their opin- 
ions in varying phrases, but the 
common run of men have the in- 
telligence and the will to make the 
decision whether they want the 
power in their government to re- 
main in their own hands as fixed 
in their Constitution, or whether 
they desire to yield their power 
into the hands of another, there- 
by establishing a possibility of the 
ultimate loss of all their power 
and a precedent that might con- 
ceivably, in the hands of a man 
not as able and honest as our pre- 
sent Executive, be used adversely 
to their interests. 

The provision of the Constitu- 
tion contained in Article II, Sec- 
tion 3, reads "He (The President) 
shall from time to time recom- 
mend to their consideration <thc 
Congress) such measures as he 
shall Judge necessary and expedi- 
ent." In the exercise of this Con- 
stitutional privilege the Presi- 
dent sent his message concerning 
the Supreme Court, for these re- 
marks will only apply to this one 
subject. Having done his duty as 
The Executive in recommending 
this measure, which he judged 
"necessary and expedient," it 
then becomes my duty and the 
duty of other members of the 
Congress to give the recommenda- 
tion careful and conscientious 
consideration. If the members of 
the Congress reach the conclu- 
sion that the proposal is neither 
necessary nor expedient then 
clearly under their oath it is 
their duty to well and faithfully 
discharge that duty by opposing 
the legislation suggested. There is 
no occasion for harsh or con- 
temptuous reference by either the 
proponent of the opponent of re- 
commended legislation. Each un- 
der the oath of his office has his 
duty to perform, one to recom- 
mend, the other to consider. Then 
the latter enacts, or refuses to 
enact such legislation. 

It seems strange that such a 
plain and simple statement should 
have to be made, but when mem- 
bers of the Congress of the United 
States, of equal dignity in our 
form of government, with the Ex- 
ecutive and the Judiciary, and 
outstanding citizens of the Coun- 
try, who have the welfare of the 
nation at heart, are classed, be- 
cause of their opposition to this 
legislation, as "the same elements 
of opposition" which, by infer- 
ence, attempted to prevent bene- 
ficial movements for the care of 
the ill-nourished, ill-clad and ill- 
housed, then protest must be 
made by those whose independ- 
ence of thought and action is 
thus impugned. I am opposed to 
this legislation— for I believe it 
to be neither necessary nor ex- 
pedient, and in addition it estab- 
lishes a dangerous precedent in 
our form of government. I have 
great admiration for the Presi- 
dent and high regard for the 

dignity of his office, and belief in 
the honesty of his purpose in re- 
commending this legislation, but 
I claim for my office as Repre- j, "^ 
sentative an equal dignity and for 
myself the right as a citizen of 
the United States to place loyalty 
to my country above that of ad- 
herence to the views of the Ex- 

I cannot be classed as being a 
part of the "same elements of 
opposition" that opposed former 
policies of the Administration for 
I gave my services willingly and 
whole-heartedly to insure the 
continuance of the Administra- 
tion, and the control of the poli- 
cies of the Government by the 
Democratic Party. But this pro- 
posal is not and should not be 
made a subject of partisan de- 
bate. The issue goes too deep into 
the centre of the system of the 
Government of this country to 
become confused by partisans 
striving for political advantage. 
Every citizen, whether he be 
Democrat or Republican, is con- 
cerned with a change in the ad- 
ministration of Justice as between 
man and man in our courts. I am 
presenting my view solely as an 
American citizen. 

It is a matter of regret that in 
the discussion of this subject, of 
most serious import to the coun- 
try and its people, there should 
be brought into play the use of 
such words as denote hostility. 
There should be no "fight" by any 
of the three great divisions of th 
government with the others- 
each has its function and should 
be permitted to function without 
undue interference on the part of 
one with the others. The people 
are citizens of a common country 
and they have the right to de- 
mand of each division that there 
be co-operation for the general 
, welfare— not antagonism. And 
the people are demanding that 
this proposal be carefully con- 
sidered by the Congress for 
eventually it may effect every 
man, woman, and child In this 
country. It should not be hastily, 
adopted. As representatives of the" 
people, it is the duty of the Con- 
gress to safeguard the power of 
the people which has been placed 
in their hands to defend, pre- 
serve, and protect. The people, 
understand the illustration of the 
three governmental plow-horses 
and they agree that the team of 
three should pull as one, but they 
have not yet decided which one 
of the three is "plunging off in 
another direction." Everybody 
was agreed that business condi- 
tions were better and the field 
was being well-plowed or so they 
thought. This proposal did not 
come from the Judiciary, which 
was moving along in the way it 
had always moved, interpreting 
legislation as to its accord with 
the Constitution; nor did it come 
from Congress, which was dis- 
charging its duty as best It could 
drafting legislation for the welfare 
of the people. No, this proposal 
came from the Executive and the 
field has not been ploughed since 
its receipt by the Congress. Little 
work has been done and further 
work cannot be done until this 
matter of supreme importance has 
been decided. The people would 
prefer the picture of "The Spirit 
of '76," the patriots moving for- 
ward, heads high and keeping 
step to brave music, under the

fated expedition to Siberia that 
forms the heart of Archie Binns* 
novel, "The Laurels Are Cut 

George and Alfred Tucker en- 
listed early because their country 
called them and their President 
said they were fighting in defense 
of democracy. They were hardy 
lads who had grown up irfThe 
pioneering tradition of the north- 
ern Washington country. They 
have been off on a glorious pro- 
specting expedition in Alaska for 
gold, but the news of Wilson's 
summons to the colors sends them 
scuddling through Arctic seas to 
their homeland— and to the re- 
cruiting office. 

In the brief interval between 
arrival and enlistment, the broth- 
ers fall in love with a girl whom 
they have both known since 
childhood. Alfred wins Clarice, 
but refuses to marry her for fear 
of binding her to a sudden widow- 

There Is no question of a sud- 
den widowhood. George and Al- 
fred soon prove themselves excel- 
lent soldiers and are kept in 
camp drilling the recruits while 

contingent after contingent of 
their fellows rumble across the 
continent to New York harbor 
and finally find action hi Prance. 
But the two brothers are among 
the few of their countrymen who, 
after Russia crumbles, are ship- 
ped to Vladivostok to try to hold 
Siberia for the White Russians 
making head under Admiral Kol- 
chak against the Bolshevlkl. 
George and Alfred are eager to 

are put to guarding the Trans- 
Siberian railway, and their duty 
consists of standing neutral while 
Cossacks butcher innocent peas- 
ants and their own men are 
threatened or killed by Japanese 
and White Russians — their sup- 
posed allies. "The Laurels Are Cut 
Down," presents a vivid picture 
of this Siberian chaos, this back- 
wash of a great war which eddies 
with blood and treachery long 
after the war itself Is over. 
Through this scene pass Alfred 
and George, wondering, then 
grim, until George yields up his 
life in bloddy horror while Alfred 
watches helplessly. 

"The Laurels Are Cut Down," 
however, embraces a larger scope 
than the Siberian fiasco. This 
book really offers material for a 
trilogy as it ranges over a long 
expanse of space and time. The 
earlier part of the novel is a pic- 
ture of the last American frontier 
—the great woodlands around 
Puget Sound. Here Mr. Binns pre- 
sents in swift, darting strokes^ 
community of people hewing out 
their lands from a wilderness of 
trees, a community' so new that 
the memory of Its first settler is 
strong in the minds of men and 
women even as it sends its young 
sons to the World War. It is from 
a childhood among such sur- 
roundings that George and Alfred 
went forth. 

On his return to this native 
scene In 1888. however, Alfred 
finds a great change in the tem- 
per of American living. Clarice Is 
married. He Is suspected of being 
a Bolshevik because of his 
Siberian experiences, his honesty 
of speech, and the disrepute into 
which report has cast the whole 
expedition of General Graves. 

How appropriate for him are 7 the 

words of the old French ahason 

which provide the title /of the 


"We studl go no more to the 

The laurels are cut down." 

Biographies of Woodrow Wilson 
have too seldom shown the ideal- 
ist and pedagogus as a human 
being. That remained for his 
daughter, Eleanor Wilson Mc- 
Adoo, to accomplish beautifully in 
"The Woodrow Wilsons." Mrs. 
McAdoo is exceedingly informal 
in her reminiscences of her fath- 
er, who as far as she was concern- 
ed always remained the man who 
helped her into her gloves before 
attending Sunday School or who 
preferred that his daughters' 
beaux should "call like gentlemen" 
Instead of using the telephone. 
Indeed, there is a host of humor- 
ous incident that reflects Mrs. 
McAdoo herself. Here is a domes- 
tic prahre that recaUs Mrs. Wil- 
son's desks and wit; Mr. Wilson's 
cheering himself at the Princeton 
games, his incredible trip to 
Washington as President: 'Miss 
Nell's" marriage to the Secretary 
of State, who. Incidentally, had a 
reputation for artistic swearing. 
With the death of Mrs. Wilson 
and in the face of gathering war 
clouds, the story of Woodrow Wil- 
son as a family man is completed. 

Twenty years after our entry 
into the war, General Frederick 
Palmer writes. "Our Gallant Mad- 
ness,'/ a terse account of so many 
men, to many guns, action here, 
troops massed there. This Is 
strangely factual and direct for 
an age which demands that his- 
tory have a point of view, but 
which doesn't care if history is 
jazzed up with a few choice ad- 

"Dusk of Empire," is another 
set of reminiscences by a war cor- 
respondent who was observer at 
Geneva, which falls somewhere 
between John Gunther's "Inside 
Europe" and Webb Miller's "I 
Pound No Peace." It is Wythe Wil- 
liams' contention that the end of 
the war found America the fore- 
most nation, but without experi- 
ence to consolidate the position. 
Perhaps he's right. M*. Williams' 
experiences are interesting, the 
smaller and more personal, the 
more interesting they are. But it 

Producers of commercial vege- 
tables in Princess Anne County 
will find that the 1837 Agricul- 
tural Conservation Program offers 
opportunity for improving their 
land and for earning payments to 
assist in defraying the costs of 
conserving and building up the 
soil, H. W. Ozlin, county agentf 
announced this week. 

Provision is made in the 1937 
program whereby vegetable and 
truck farmers may build up 
organic matter in the soil, im- 
prove its condition and moisture- 
holding capacity, prevent erosion, 
and, at the same time, qualify for 

Payments may be earned in 
either of two ways— by carrying 
out soil-building practices that 
build-up the fertility of the soil 
or by diverting from the produc- 
tion of soil-depleting crops to soil- 
conserving crops. 

A soil-building allowance will 
be established , for each farm. 
This allowance is the maximum 
amount for which payment may 
Jbe made for carrying out soil- 
building practices on the farm in 

Payments Increased 

Of particular interest to vege- 
table and truck farmers is the 
fact that the soil-building allow- 
ance for any farm will, in addi- 
tion to the allowance otherwise 
provided, include $1 for each acre 
on which commercial vegetables 
were grown in 1838. It will include 
an additional $1 for each acre on 
which two or more crops of com- 
mercial vegetables were grown In 
1936. Commercial vegetables as 
defined in this case means any 
acreage of vegetable or truck crops

woven on a loom and then processed 
for long life! 

We both know how important

windows and woodwork with the 
shades. You have no Idea what a

The Cook's Nook 


Whether you are "going to 
London to see the Queen"— and 
the King and the coronation, or 
whether you "see by the papers" 
this historic pageant and cere- 
mony, you'll be taking a "cook's 
tour" to London if you would be 
up with the times. 

"The pleasures of the table" are 
no small part of the ceremonies, 
and to Englishmen the Coronation 
is a "bean feast"— a time of fun, 
frolic and rejoicing. State lunch- 
eons and dinners at Buckingham 
Palace— where the solid gold din- 
ner service— worth 16 million dol- 
lars — will be used means many 
a dainty dish to set before the 
Queen, and many a special chefs' 
masterpiece "fit for a King!" 

Already setting the style in 
clothes, colors and jewelry, the 
coronation is certain to set new 
food styles, and coronation parties 
will be the new note for smart 
hostesses. With over 2,000,000 
visitors from all over the world. 
London hotels, restaurants and 
private homes will be serving the 
traditional dishes of many coun- 
tries. Scotch dishes in honor of 
their Scottish Queen; traditional 
dishes of the House of Windsor, 
and special delicacies of French 
chefs will give an international 
flavor to these feasts and parties. 

Whether you celebrate with buf- 
fet parties, with luncheons or din- 
ners — a coronation party you must 
have, and the dishes given below, 
have come from many lands to 
give an international flavor to 
your feast when you, too. are "at

Child Health 

"No more pronounced and satis- 
s has been made 
than that concerned with child 
health. As recently as ten years 
ago May Day was celebrated in 
a fiesta spirit exclusively. Now. 
in addition to the traditional 
activities, it focuses attention on 
preventive medicine by way of 
vaccines, serums, communicable 
disease control, sanitation, and 
enlightened public opinion." 
states Dr. I. C. Riggin. State 
Health Commissioner. 

"The medical profession can 
point pridef uUy to the marked 
decreases in the death rate of 
children^ and the corresponding 
increase in the life-expectancy 
of those' in the age group from 
birth to 45 years. However, if this 
record is to be expected or even 
maintained, more parents will 
have to exhibit an intelligent in- 
terest in the welfare of their 
children than are doing so today, 
however great the present number 
may be. 

"Appreciating that Virginia's 
children represent its most valu- 
able asset, it is most logical each 
spring and summer for State and 
local health departments to em- 
phasize activities associated with 
the control of child health work 
through summer round-up acti- 

On the other hand, public con- 
cern for the health of children is 
limited. Well-baby and dental 
clinics and other protective health 
work can reach only so far. Con- 
sequently, the part that the par- 
ent and the family physician play 
in the welfare of the individual 
child is vitally important. 

"What a child eats, how much 
rest it gets, the hours it spends 
regularly in the fresh air and sun- 
shine, the clothing it wears, and 
many other factors are quite as 
important as are protection 
against smallpox, diptheria and 
other essential preventive expedi- 
ents. And it is in these highly per- 
sonal requirements— requirements 
that need to be adapted to the in- 
dividual child— that the family 
physician should be called upon 
to fill and thus render an in- 
valuable service. 

"In short, until the general 
public views the doctor not only 
as anyone to be called in when 
something suddenly goes wrong 
with children but uses him as a 
professional counsellor, the child 
health program both in Virginia 
and in other parts of the coun- 
try will not be able to render its 
maximum service."

OEDROOM lighting that makes 
full provisions for dressing, fa- 
cial make-up, and reading in bed, 
is rare to see — but easy to obtain. 
And with the new types of fixtures 
on the market today, it can be quite 
inexpensive, as well. 

A good example of lighting effi- 
ciency and decorative balance, is 
shown in the accompanying illustra- 
tion. Ample general lighting is pro- 
vided by a simple but attractive 
ceiling fixture made of ivory-glass 
and brass, carrying three 40-watt 
bulbs. It's no trouble at all to find 
a collar-button or hairpin when light 
like this is available. 

Note the fixtures at either side of 
the mirror. These are the new 
portable wall units, sold at many 
good specialty shops and department 
•tores. Costing little, yet good-look- 

6g, they suspend from a push-pin 
serted in the wall, are mounted 
K face height, and carry 60-watt 
lbs. Concealed beneath the shade 
Is • translucent plastic bowl that 

diffuses the light, and sends it in 
botir upward and downward direc- 
tions. One advantage of them, 
among others, .is that they leave 
clear the entire surface of the dres- 

Reflected in the mirror is a sim- 
ilar type of unit placed on the wall 
above the beds. Contrary to early 
belief, reading in bed is not neces- 
sarily harmful to the eyes. When 
lighting and body posture are cor- 
rect, it can be a relaxing, comfort- 
able pastime. 

Many a boudoir lamp hung upon 
the headboard of a bed isf unsatis- 
factory, because its; light js glaring 
and its location makes the reader 
assume an uncomfortable, cramped 
position. With the new portable 
wall units, however, we almost un- 
consciously assume a fairly upright 
position. The light coming from the 
unit is pr ope r Ij r diffused, and shines 
onto the page, instead of into the 
eyes. Altogether, it's a vast im- 
provement over most of the types 
of lighting formerly available for a

With proper methods of sou

ance his plant food withdrawals 
and build up his soil year after 
year. An Alabama cotton farmer 
reports that his farm, when ho 
first bought IV would produce 
but one bale of cotton to each 
three acres. After ten years of 
proper management, in which he ' 
used legumes and live stock to

It Is not unusual for corn Belt

Methods for soil building are 
individual problems. The wise 
farmer carefully analyses his lay-

and markets. His fields are plant-

legumes. All manure is saved

Vt is essential also before ex- 
amining the question of the neces- 
sity or expediency of this proposed 
legislation to refresh our know- 
ledge of the Constitution as an in- 
strument of government. Was the 
Constitution intended to be rigid 
or flexible? The answer is— and 
this goes to the core of the whole 
question — it was intended to be 
rigid, until the people changed it. 
As provision was made in the 
document itself foe such changes 
as the people desired, it must be 
termed flexibte^JCn the Constitu- 
tion is lodged the power of the 
people. The people gave the 
Constitution to the country that 
their rights and liberties should 
be known and prese r v e d as they 
gave it and only the people can 
take it away. There is no other 
power, by direction or indirection, 
that can change it except it be 
done by the will of the people Jn 
the manner prescribed, viz., by 
amendment. It is said that the 
process of change by amendment 
is hard to obtain. That is, -true. It 
was intentionally m; " 
for the express 
be kept rigid unti 
the absolute 
change then there 
tag of security in the basic law 
that win tend to permanence of 
our gov e rn m ental institutions. On 
the other hand, if it were easy to 
change it, then it would finally 
become not a Constitution but a 
code of laws. The result would be 
that at any time a sufficiently 
powerful majority, carried away 
by the political enthusiasm of the 
moment, might ignore or destroy 
the rights of impotent minorities. 
Some may think that this would 
be desirable but our political 
fluctuations are too sudden for 
any man. whether he be at the 
bottom or the top of political con- 
trol to take a chance so suver- 
sive of our form of government. 

The United States has prosper- 
ed under its system of govern- 
ment. Starting from nothing, as 
might be said, it has developed 
into the most important nation 
on earth, as its citizens fondly be- 
lieve. The Supreme Court in the 
exercises of its powers has often 
passed upon laws desired by the 
Executive and the Congress and 
declared invalid. Presidents have 
objected and Congress has ob- 
jected but the Supreme Court has 
replied "The will that prevails is 
the will of the people, expressed 
$i the Constitution which they 
have enacted." as was so tersely 
stated by a distinquished student 
of our form of government. And 
this same authority further said, 
"To construe the law, that is, to 
elucidate the will of the people as 
supreme lawgiver, is the begin- 
ning and end of their duty." Re- 
ference should also be made to 
the remarks of James Wilson, of 
Pennsylvania, who has been call- 
ed "one of the deepest thinkers 
and most exact reasoners" of the 
Constitution Convention of 1787. 
when in addressing the Pennsyl- 
vania Congress of 1788, he said, 
"Perhaps some would observe that 
In our governments the supreme 
power was vested in the Constitu- 
tions. This opinion approaches 
absolute and uncontrollable pow- 
er remains in the people. As our 
constitutions are superior to our 
legislatures so the people are 
superior to our constitutions." 

There must be some final arbi- 
ter in whom the people have con- 
fidence to render the final deci- 
sion. Under the Constitution, and 
under their oath to interpret it 
and validate all legislation con- 
sonant with it, for all the years 
of this nation the Supreme Court 
has been doing its duty as seemed 
to it right and proper in render- 
ing its decisions. The people have 
accepted their verdict. Some have 
objected to its Judgment at one 
time or another, but the people 
fmve apemed content to abide 
by its interpretation and have re- 
ceived it In good faith. No one 
knows what dangers have been 
avoided by this willingness of the 
people to accept this method of 
settling their disputes and dis- 
agreements. So there has grown 
up a very proper regard and re- 
verence for the Court and a very 
decided opinion among the peo- 
ple that the system that has 
worked acceptably for one hund-

not be changed— the Supreme 
Court will still have its power- 
no change is made except in the 
number of Justices." Ordinarily, 
that would be true and the argu-

this time, however, when there 
has been irritation manifested 
that the Supreme Court has de- 
cided certain legislation was not 
in keeping with the Constitution, 
there would be reasonable ground 
for assumption that the proposal 
is put forward in order that such 
legislation would be declared con- 
stitutional instead of unconstitu- 
tional. The decision has been ren- 
dered. It is final. The people have 
accepted it. 

There is no special virtue in 
the' number fifteen any more 
than in the number nine. To add 
six more would simply increase 
the cost to the people in that they 
would have to bear the expense of 
six more than now constitute the 
Court. The present membership 
is composed of men learned in 
the law with years of experience 
and study of the Constitution. No 
fault has been found with their 
ability or integrity. Any matter 
arising under the Constitution 
could safely be left to their in- 
terpretation, except legislation 
some wish to become the law of 
the land which has Heretofore 
been adjudged unconstitutional by 
the present judges. The conclu- 
sion is inescapable that it is hop- 
ed the new judges, if appointed, 
will render a different interpreta- 
tion than has been already ren- 
dered. Otherwise there would be 
no point in simply enlarging their 
number. This is now virtually ad- 
mitted by witnesses advocating 
the proposal testifying before the 
Senate Committee. At first there 
were certain reasons given for the 
enlargement of the Court. As the 
argument was shown not to be 
correct in its statement of facts, 
the real argument was then ad- 
vanced, viz., that it was desired to 
have certain legislation declared 
constitutional which had pre- 
viously been held unconstitutional. 
It then necesarUy follows that a 
precedent is established of chang- 
ing the number for the purpose of 
having certain legislation declar- 
ed valid which would otherwise be 
declared invalid. If this purpose 
could be accomplished by adding 
six it could be accomplished by 
adding more— any number to at- 
tain the desired result. With 
stronger reasoning, instead of a 
rigid Constitution, flexible only to 
the will of the people, you would 
have a constitution subject, not 
to the will of the people, but to 
the will of the Executive or Con- 
gress or both. In fact, you would 
have no Constitution at all, such 
as it is now. for you would have 
destroyed it, and the will of the 
President becomes the law of the 
land. This possibility is certainly 
existent and if the possibility be- 
comes an accomplished fact, then 

the fundamental form of our gov- 
ernment has been materially 

Why did the Executive declare 
this legislation to be "neces- 

It must be noted that the pro- 
posal with references to placing 
additional judges on the Supreme 
Court was tied up with recom- 
mendations for district and circuit 
courts. The reasons given as ap- 
plicable to the recommendations 
for district and circuit courts also 
were applied generally to the 
Supreme Court. Yet the reasons 
given in some cases were appli- 
cable to district and circuit courts 
alone and were not applicable to 
the Supreme Court. 

First, reference was made to 
the congestion of the calendar. 
This was easily remedied in the 
lower courts, but it was found 
that there was no congestion in 
the calendar of the Supreme 
Court, therefore, this reason can 
be eliminated so far as the Su- 
preme Court is concerned. 

Second, it was proposed to 
make the Judiciary more elastic 
by providing for temporary trans- 
fers of circuit and district Judges. 
In its terms this did not apply to 
the Supreme Court— it referred 
only to circuit and district courts. 

Third, to furnish the Supreme 
Court practical assistance in 
supervising the conduct of the bus- 
iness in the lower courts. This 
was to be done by establishing the 
office of a proctor and in its 
►terms not make applicable to the 
Supreme Court the necessity of 
six additional Judges. 
• Fourth, to eliminate inequality, 
uncertainty, and delay in the de- 
termination o f constitutional 
questions. No inequality, or uncer- 
tainty was shown to be applica- 
ble to the Supreme Court In Its 
determination of such questions. 

As to the delay and cost to litig- 
ants, there were no facts cited to 
show that IB Judges would take 
shorter time to decide than would 
nine Judges. As a matter of fact, 
the probabilities are that it would 
take longer for 15 Judges to deter- 
mine a case than it would take 
rune. Certainly, there is no ground 
to believe that the cost to litigants 
would be any leas. The procedure 
Involved is the same and the coat 
would probably be about the same. 
Therefore, none of the four rea- 
sons became applicable to the 
Supreme Court. 

Why did the Executive recom- 
mend this legislation as "expedi- 
ent?" This word has such broad 
implications that it may be said 
this question was answered, not 
specifically, but by the recom- 
mendation taken in its entirety. 
Attention might be called to the 

fact that the expediency of the 
legislation seemed to have been 
overlooked. However, the Attorney 
General in an address broadcast 
on February " 14th, probably 
throws light on this. He wanted to 
know in a rhetorical question fwny 
the Supreme Court should 
granted a "special exemption f ri 
the plan," and he said no one" 
was presumptous enough to 
think that the Attorney General 
of the United States should be in- 
formed that the Supreme Court 
was the court of last resort and 

that their decision was final. Then 
he said "what then is the real ob- 
jection?" Answering his own ques- 
tion, he replied to himself as fol- 
lows: It is simply this: Those who 
wish to preserve the status quo 
want to retain on the bench 
judges who may be relied upon to 
vfete progressive measures." If 
this be true, then the corollary 
is true, that those who wish to 
change the status quo want to 
place on the bench judges who 
may be relied upon to sustain pro- 
gressive measures. In an analysis 
of this statement the first trouble 
arises in defining what are "pro- 
gressive measures." What are 
"prog r es si ve measures" and - who 
will decide what is "progressive" 
and what is not pr ogres si ve? Not 
every measure that some one calls 
"progressive" is necessarily "pro- 
gressive" in the definition of the 
word as it exists to the minds of 
all others. Our lunatic asylums 
are full of people who are there 
because they advocated something 
they called "progressive" but 
which everybody else called 
"nonsense." Who will decide what 
is a •"progressive measure?" 'Ay, 
there's the rob." Surely the At- 
torney General would not blithely 
undertake the tremendous respon- 
sibility of deciding what measures 
were progressive that the Judges 
might be retted upon to sustain. 
The matter has not been cleared 
up by the words of the Attorney 
General— only the real reason for 
placing additional Judges on the 
Supreme Court, which heretofore 
has been obscure, is now brought 
out into the light of day. 

But the matter as a whole has 
not been stated correctly by the 
Attorney General. Judges should 
not be placed on the Supreme 
Court because thev/can be "re- 
lied upon" to veto what some 

think are 
nor because 
upon to susl 
are progn 
prime re 
judges is tl 
on th< 


ressive measures, 

can be relied 

what some think 

ive measures. The 

for appointing 

exact antithesis of 

nt. Justices are put 

eme Bench to declare 

honestly and conscientiously that 
certain legislation brought before 
them (is in accord, or is not In ac- 
cord with the Constitution, re- 
gardless of whether any one 
thinks such legislation is progres- 
sive or not progressive. 

The charge is made that the 
Supreme Court has usurped the 
powers of the Executive and the 
Congress. There can be no usurpa- 
tion by the court so long as it de- 
cides such cases as are brought 
before it in accordance with what 
iks is the law. No- one 
charges., that it has deliberately 
seized and used offices, functions, 
powers, or rights which belonged 
to tother divisions of the gov- 
ernment. The charge is 'merely 

that its decision is not the deci- 
sion some others might have 
made. Usurpation, if usurpation 
there be. can be far more readily 
applied to other divisions of Che 
government for the proposal 
would usurp — not merely the pow- 
er of the Supreme Court— but 
what is far more important — it 
would usurp the power of the peo- 
ple of the United States. The Su- 
preme Court was intended by the 
founders to protect the people of 
the States from the usurpation of 
power by the Executive on the one 
hand and the Congress on the 
other. So this device of govern- 
ment, new departure as it was 
from other governmental systems, 
was made into an independent 
judiciary, when by unanimous 
vote in the convention of 1787, the 
Judges were appointed for life, and 
became independent of legislative 
or executive control. The Presi- 
dent's proposal destroys that in- 
dependence whenever the Execu- 
tive and Congress legislate to pro- 
vide such a number of additional 
Judges that the duly-considered 
views of incumbent judges may 
be over-ridden. It is true that 
their life-tenure still makes them 
independent, in a sense, but could 
they remain in de pendent to their 
decisions, if they thought that at 
any time then* rulings displeased 
Congress or the Executive they 
would be virtually suspersed by a 
Judge who might be placed on the 
bench to render opinions more 
pleasing to "the powers that be?" 
Would they not be sensitive to 
such procedure to an extent that 
would influence their Judgment? 
Who would then say that the pow- 
er of the people as expressed in 
the Constitution has not shifted 
from the people to the Executive 
and the legislature body? What 
has become of the security of the 
power of the people, which the 
Fathers thought they had ir- 
revocably provided in that great 
document, the Constitution? 
There is only one answer: The 
power of the people as expressed 
in their Constitution is forever

Virginians are expected to use 
30,000,000 Christmas Seals on 
their holiday mail next December. 

An order for that quantity was 
placed today by tHe Virginia 
Tuberculosis Association with the 
National Organization, and they 
will be ready for distribution early 
in the fall to all local associations 
and tuberculosis committees. 

Last Christmas, Virginia used 
28.500.000 seals, the income from 
which is being used to continue 
warfare against tuberculosis in 
the Old Dominion. Revenue from 
the 1936 rales reached a total of 
$96,500, an all-tfime high, said 
Miss Leslie Combs Foster, execu- 
tive secretary of the Virginia As- 

"Demand for the seals has 
reached such proportions," Miss 
Foster explained, "that we are 
obliged to place the order for our 
supply early in the spring to be 
able to furnish them to the local 
association on time. 

"Indeed, the annual production 
of Christmas seals has reached 
such size that four different 
lithographers in different sections 
of the country are required to re- 
produce them. 

"The new seals are a beautiful 
dark blue," Miss Foster continued, 
"and bear a cheerful figure of a 
bell-ringing watchman, lantern 
and all. In the background is a 
glimpse of a gaily lighted home 
with Yule decorations. The fami- 
liar flaming-red double-barred 
cross stands out conspiciously in 
the upper left-hand corner." 

In each sheet of 100 seals there 
are four bright yellow stickers, 
bearing these simple messages 
about tuberculosis: "Health for 
all," "Protect your home," "Pre- 
ventable' 'and "Curable." The in- 
e/itable double-barred cross also 
flashes its silent message from 
these yellow seals.

Locating Vegetable Crops 

WHENEVER possible the vege- 
table crop should be suited to 
the soil. far the best soil for 
nearly all uops is a loam with good 
water-holding capacity. Nearly all 
crops, too, should have f uH sun. 

But conditions can rarely be per- 
fect. The following information is 
offered as a guide for those who 
have problems in locating crops. 

In heavy or clayey soils, grow 
the following: Beans, Beets, Broc- 
coli, Brussels Sprouli Cabbape. 
Cauliflower, Chicory, Corn, Kale, 
Peas, Pumpkin, Rhubarb, Spinach, 
Squash, Swiss Chard and Ruu-bapa. 

In light or sandy roils plant As- 
paragus, Carrot, Celery, Colhvds, 
Chinese Cabbage (Celery Cabbage), 
Cucumber, Egg Plant, Endive, Kohl- 
rabi, Lettuce, Mu^kmelon, Water^ 
melon, Mustard, Okra, Onion, Pars- 
ley, Parsnip, Pepper, Radish, Toma- 
to, Turnip and most of the herbs. 

Sandy soils usually yield an early 
but comparatively light crop. Clayey 
soils usually mature the crop a little 
later, but the yield is heavier. 

In muck soils, plant Onions, Cele- 
ry, Chinese Cabbage, Radish, Tur- 
nip, Carrot, Kale, Lettuce, Mustard, 
Parsley, Parsnip, Rhubarb, Spinach, 
Swiss Chard, and herbs. Onions and 
Celery are excellent muck crops. 

In shaded portions of the garden, 
the following may bo tried: Bears, 
Radish, Lettuce, Endive, Kale, Cab. 
bage, Beet, Sprouting Broccoli, Car- 
rot, Mustard, Parsley, Parsnip, 
Rhubarb, Swiss Chard, Turnips and 

For planting near the house, 
which must be considered from the 
standpoint of appearance, the fol- 
lowing are advised because of their 
more attractive foliage and neater 
habit of growth: Pm dey, Kale, 
Beets, Lettuce, Spinach. Dwarf 
Ee.nns, Cucumbers (uviled on trel- 
lis), herbs, and Corn (if there is suf- 
ficient space).

was "boncfire" and was applied to 
fires for burning the corpses ol 
those killed by the wars and pesti-

the Middle Ages. Later, when 
heretics were burned at the stake, 
"bonefire" was the nam* applied to 
the nres that consumed these vic-

fhe special session of the 
Council held in the Munici-

Notice will be served upon all 
dairies operating within the 
Town limits of the ordinance's

non-pasteurized milk will become 
tely effective. 

Baton Sponsors Measure 


Adoption of the pure milk law 
climaxed occasional discussions on 
the part of the councibnen and 
others interested in its passage 
over the past two years, and the 
approved measure includes all of 
the exacting requirements and 
sanitary regulations introduced 
into the months of argument. 
The bill as adopted was intro- 
duced and sponsored by Roland 
O. Baton, managing director of 
the Cavalier Hotel, who appeared 
before the council two months ago 
to urge the passage of a model 

Other than requiring the pas- 
teurization of all milk sold locally, 
the ordinance sets forth sanitary 
regulations of dairy bams, milk- 
ing equipment and utensils used 
for the storing and transporting 
of milk and cream. In its essence, 
the bill parallels the model ordin- 
ance drawn up for municipalities 
by the Virginia State Department 
of Health 

With most of the clubhouse 
completely redecorated and re- 
furnished, the Princess Anne 
Country Club this week an- 
nounced that all renovations 
would be accomplished by June 1, 
when the formal summer opening 
will be staged. According to R, B. 
Derring, manager of the club, 
the sum of $23,000 was expended 
on the improvement program, and 
the headquarters of Tidewater's 
best known golfing haven now 
renks among the finest equipped 
in the entire country. 

Outstanding among the many 
improvements is the Colonial 
Dining Room, decorated in a color 
scheme Which features Williams- 
burg blue and oyster white. New 
lighting fixtures and draperies 
add to the charm of the room, 
which has been equipped with 
new china, glassware and silver. 

B ed r oo ms Refurnished 

Adjoining the dining room is 
the newly furnished and re- 
decorated Cocktail Lounge. The 
twenty bedrooms on the upper 
floor, reserved for the use of mem- 
bers of the club and their guests, 
have been included in the im-

The action was taken upon the 

liiest of ocean-front property 

_ icrs who appeared before the 
council to protest the increased 
use of bicycles oh the boardwalk 
and the consequent hazard to the 
life and limbs of pedestarins. Of- 
ficial action of the council pro- 
hibits the use of bicycles on the 
boardwalk between the hours of 
t p. m. and 7 a. m.. during the 
summer season.

refurnished. Vermont hard rock 
maple furniture has been substi- 
tuted for the bedroom equipment 
previously used. 

On the lower floor, in the spaci- 
ous kitchen, are to be found new 
dish-washing machines, steam 
tables, deep-fryers, refrigerators 
and ranges equipped with auto- 
matic stokers. Mr. Derring, in ex- 
plaining the functions of the new- 
ly-installed cooking and cleaning 
aids, stated that the equipment 
was the moat complete to be 
found on the Beach. 

New Locker Equipment 

In the locker rooms, new equip- 
ment also has been added, all de- 
s'smec'. for the comfort and con- 
venience of the club's patrons. 
In addition, new tile shower stalls 
and bath tubs have been placed 
on the upper floor, new carpets 
and rugs secured for the floors 
and other improvements made. 

There is a possibility, Mr. Der- 
ring stated, that a swimming pool 
will be developed on the front 
lawn of the clubhouse. Final ac- 
tion on this project, tentatively 
approved by $he board of gover- 
nors, will be taken at a meeting 
scheduled for this week-end.

Mrs. 8. M. Simpson, of Virginia 
Beach, was re-elected committee- 
woman for the second district of 
the Virginia Department of the 
American Legion at the fifteenth 
annual district convention held 
last Saturday at the Willoughby 
T. Cooke School. Mrs. Franklin 
Bradshaw, of Suffolk, also was re- 
elected alternate committee- 
woman, and Miss Helen Acton, of 
Portsmouth, was elected secre- 
tary, succeeding Miss Cora 
Vaughan, of Franklin, who de- 
clined to serve a third- term. 

The convention was opened 
with a luncheon at which the 
local auxiliary of Unit 51 served 
as hostesses. Mrs. J. F. Wood- 
house, president of the Princess 
Anne unit, was toastmaster, and 
brief responses were made by 
Mrs. J. C. Cornick, of Virginia 
Beach: Mrs. Bradshaw; W. P. 
Dodson. Jr., post commander of 
the County Legion; Henry Wood- 
house, vice commander; Mrs. 
Charles W. McKinney, of Clifton 
Forge, president of the State De- 
partment; Mrs. Simpson 'and 
other delegates. Fairfield HodgW 
-commander of the second district, 
also was presented, congratulating 
the auxiliary upon the work being 
done locally by its membership. 

Mu. McKinney spoke briefly at 
the afternoon session, stressing 
the program of „ the auxiliary as 
one designed to "bring before the 
people the prin"i;>)?s and ideals 
upon which the American re- 
public was founded and for which 
its ir en shed blood on many bat- 
tlefi?:ds." The Virginia auxiliary, 
she reported, has 2.834 paid mem- 
berships, which approximates the 
quota set for the State by the 
national headquarters. 

Reports Heard 

The five units in the district 
presented their annual reports, 
Mrs. Arthur J. Wilkins. speaking 
for Portsmouth; Mrs. Bradshaw 
for Suffolk; Mrs. Lillian Drew, 
for Norfolk; Miss Vaughan for 
Franklin, and Mrs. Woodhcuse 
for Princess Anne. 

Mrs. W. O. Newman, of Hilton 
Village, department rehabilitation 
chairman, drew attention to the 
Christmas work done in the state 
when 2.298 hospitalized veterans 
were given gifts by the auxiliary, 
and 618 children were cared for 
through the rehabilitation fund. 
She alFu spoke of the need of 
family contact and follow-up 

>rk, praising the results now 
being obtained along ocen national 
therapy lines. 


Importance of Continued Soil 
Erosion Work in State Is 
Pointed Out. 

Governor Peery has communi- 
cated a protest to Secretry of Agri- 
culture Wallace against the re- 
port that the Soil Conservation 
Service of the United States De- 
partment of the Agriculture will 
make a reduction of 32 per cent 
in the allotment of funds to Vir- 
ginia for 1938. 

Emphasizing the importance of 
the continuance of the soil ero- 
sion work in Virginia, Governor 
Peery pointed out that tobacco, 
one of the state's most important 
crops) is more seriously, affected 
by erosion than any other crop. 

Cites Regional Decrease 

He called attention to the aver- 
age decrease for Region Two, to 
which Virginia belongs, of 7 per 
cent and the average decrease for 
the United States as a whole of 
8 per cent and saM that the pro- 
posal to cut Virginia's funds 22 
per cent amounts to "discrimina- 

Governor Pefry set forth a 
whole table of figures and com- 
mented that "Virginia will suffer 
a decrease of 32 per cent, while 
Florida will be favored with an 
increase of 40 per cent. North 
Carolina, our neighbor to the 
South, will suffer a decrease of 
only 11 per cent. 

Situation Said Dissimilar 

"The situation of North Caro- 
lina certainly would seem to te 
comparable to the State of Vir- 
ginia. Virginia and North Caro- 
lina, of course, each pay into the 
Federal treasury more revenue 
than all the other states com- 
bined. It will be further noted 
that only One state will have a 
smaller allocation than Virginia 
and that state is Florida, with a 
40 per cent increase. I am ad- 
vised that Florida has a very 
limited erosion problem. 

"The 32 per cent in Virginia 
funds, will likely mean one of two 
things; the abandonment of one 
of the projects now under way, 
or the abandonment of contracts 
with one-third of the co-operators 
under all of the projects being 
handled. Either alternative would 
result in serious injury to the 
program. Contracts with co- 
operators in many instances are 
secured with a great deal of dif- 
ficulty and invariably mean radi- 
cal changes in farming methods. 
Changes in farming methods re- 
sult in heavy expense to the co- 
operator and his hope is that he 
will be partially compensated by,

CommiHJtCy interest in the 
fourth annual amateur rose show, 
sponsored by the Garden Club of 
Princess Anne County, is said to 
be running higher in this sea- 
son's schedule of classes than 
ever before, and an all-time re- 
cord of exhibits is expected to be 
established when the doors open 
this morning. The show, as in past 
years, will be held in the ballroom 
of the Cavalier Hotel and will be 
open to both exhibitors and visi- 
tors without charge. 

One of the features of the 
show, it was learned, win be an 
exhibit of roses, both old and new 
varieties, by Miss Evelyn Collins 
Hill, general chairman of the two- 
day program. Miss Hill's display 
will not be entered in the com- 
petitions, but is expected to con- 
tain some of the county's love- 
liest blooms. 

Show Opens At 3 •'Clack 

This morning will be devoted 
to the placing of the exhibits in 
their allotted positions, and the 
general public will be permitted 
in the ballroom at three o'clock, 
with a night session planned. To- 
morrow night, at five o'clock, the 
show will be brought to a close 
with the awarding of the sweep- 
stakes prims. 

One hundred and two classes 
have been announced, all but 
three of which will be open to 
amateur growers of the Tidewater 
area, the three classes excepted 
will present breakfast trays and 
dinner tables prepared by mem- 
bers of the garden club.

In a communication received 
this week at the office of the Vir- 
ginia Beach News from Brother 
Starkey, self-styled prophet jA 
the House of the Lord and a re- 
sident of the Glen Rock com- 
munity, it was asserted that the 
Hindenberg disaster at Lakehurst, 
the coronation of King George 
VI and the floods which recently 
swept through Virginia and other 
states were predicted in pro- 
phecies uttered prior to the time 
of the events. Last notice of a 
prophecy come true, as reported 
by Brother Starkey and published 
in these' columns, concerned the 
re-election of President Roosevelt 
last fall by a tremendous ma-

That the zeppelin would be 
damaged in the air was propbe- 
cied on August 15, 1935, the com- 
munication continues, and the 
numerical listing of the pro- 
phecy is stated as 1455. 

On September 5, 1935, the re- 
port continues, it was prophecied 
that "the King of England will 
become the brother of the King 
of England." A further detail. of 
the prophecy reports that the 
king was seen in a vision on 
board of a ship, dead, with the 
body of the king, pr e suma b l y the 
present Duke of Windsor, bound 
for America. 

It was on January 22 of this

prophecy number 1941, that the 
revelation of the spring floods 
Was revealed. Sudden floods 
would bring disaster to the City 
of Richmond and other communi- 
ties to the north with a loss of 
life, he confesses to have report- 
ed at that time, with the pro- 
phecy made reality late in April.

To Follow Pacific Avenue 

According to the approved 
plans, the new spur Jjne, which 
connects with the main track 
from Norfolk to Virginia Beach at 
Tr.elfth Street, will follow Pacific 
Avenue to Second 8treet, cross 
Rudee Inlet over a new railroad 
bridge, and then join the existing 
line running to the Rifle Range. 
The track now located on Atlantic 
Avenue will ire removed, ending 
one of the "eyesores" on the 
southern end of the boulevard. 


According to 
Town engineer, who is supervis- 
ing the development of the right- 
of-way, the grading work will be 
completed within the next month. 
By July 1, the track will be laid 
and the Rifle Range once again 
will have a railroad connect 
with the outside world. In arh*Tac- 
rording to the engineer 8.000 
cubic yards of fill and/250 cubic 
yards of cut will be necessary to 
insure a proper roadbed for the 
new line.

At the dinner session, to which 
all business men and hotel opera-

slate of officers for the approval 
of the membership. 

Agency tadowel 

Approval of a resolution to en- 
dorse and sponsor the Don 8ei- 
well Advertising Agency, recently 
developed to serve local advertis- 
ers in their campaigns to secure 
summer patronage was voted by 
the board of directors The beard, 
acting for the entire membership, 
urged that an local advertisers 
utilize the faculties of the recent- 
ly-created agency and place their 
newspaper copy through its chan- 
nels. Such action, it was stressed 
at the meeting, would insure a 
better presentation of Beach in- 
terests and would react to the 
general good of the organisation 
since a greater volume at publi- 
city could be anticipated under 
such a set-up. 

In return for the support ac- 
corded to the agency by the 
Chamber of Commerce, the pro* 
motion organisation has agreed 
to contribute a percentage of its 
profits to the chamber for the

The suggestion offered to the 
Town Council by the executive 
committee of the Virginia Beach 
Chamber of Commerce that a 
six-foot portion of the waBrway 
be reserved during the summer 
months for the use of bicycle 
rs is, we beUeve, a eompro- 
agreement worthy of serious 
consideration. We have no idea 
that the/painting of a white line 
on the length of the walkway will 
keep every enthusiastic cyclist off 
the other twelve feet reserved for 
persons afoot, but, with proper 
policing, the majority of riders 
may be expected to observe the 
traffic ruling and so eliminate the 
hazard to life and limb that ex- 
ists in-tne present unrestricted 
competition between the, cyclist 
and the stroller. 

We have always advocated the 
greatest-freedom -for our vacation 
patrons, believing that the popu- 
larity of the Beach depends in 
large measure upon the absence 
of unnecessary restrictions. How-

Pete's Pink Parlor Puzzles Patrons. We t hreat e n ed to write that 
line, and there it is— as good a summary of the public's reaction to 
the beauty treatment given VEPCO's office during the past two weeks 
as could be presented, however bard we might try to improve upon 
our first expressed opinion of the colorful layout. Pete's "pink" takes 
another name when he speaks of those walls, but we are not so color- 
blind as not to recognize a subterfuge when we see it! 

Vet, as we stand startled before this work of art, we art forced 
to admit that Pete has dene no more Own take advantage of the 
very latest authority on proper decoration. The ensemble is strik- 
ingly different from most Beach interiors, but it does fulfill the pur- 
pose) intended. The office is light and airy during the day— as befits 
a parlor— and positively brilliant at night. Engineers who devote 
their entire time to such matters couldn't have accomplished with all 
of their skill a better Job than Pete brought about, and, though we 
prefer a bit more somber place of work and residence for ourselves, 
we're ready to hand out congratulations to Pete, the leader of the 
town's ultra-modern artistic circle. 


VOICE of • 

the cause of government 
K be the voice of a well- 
sad wefl-intenttonetfever. the difference between free- 
dom and license is readily appar- 
ent, and we would treat any viola- 
tion of the proposed bicycle traf- 
fic code as is done with speeders 
and drunken motorists. 

Thus, if the policeman on duty 
encounters a rider who consist- 
ently refuses to keep within the 
restricted cycling area, we would 
have him arrested and treated as 
an offending motorist is treated. 
If stands renting bicycles con- 
tinue to rent them to drunks and 
other general nuisances, we would 
have their licenses revoked and 
the renting privilege taken from 
them. Certainly we can anticipate 
no real improvement of a present 
intolerable condition until some 
attempt at regulation is made and 
a spirit of observance of the laws 
governing bicycle-riding brought 
into general use. ^- 

Bicycle-riding on the walkway 
stands so high in local vacation 
attractions that we hesitate to 
approve any measure which looks 
to its elimination. However, we 
realize full well that the lack of 
restrictive measures can only re- 
sult in an increase of walkway ac- 
cidents, some of them serious, 
and the complete abandonment 
of the walkway by those who 
would otherwise enjoy its strolling 

As a compromise measure, 
therefore, we commend to the 
councilmen the proposal made 
this week by the Chamber of 
Commerce directors. 

Not far behind Pete's artistic endeavor is a sketch of the pro- 
posed Chamber of Commerce building prepared by Herbert Terry. 
Its interior is most circumspect, but the front of the tiny establish- 
ment frowns on local standards of conservative design and fairly 
shrieks of modernity. If built as sketched— amj^u^rejioping it will 
be — a few of the natives are certain to be a bit shocked by what they 
see. Still, that is progress, and we're all for it. No telling, the next 
few years may see the blossoming forth of innumerable modern fronts 
and interiors on a previously conservative Atlantic Avenue. 

Speaking of the Chamber of Commerce building, there is a defi- 
nite need for the placing of the information bureau on the main 
thoroughfare, and plans now seem to be on the way to fulfillment of 
such a project. If arrangements can be completed, a striking black 
and aluminum front, replete with a queer gadget which the architect 
designates as a pylon, soon will make its appearance alongside of 
more sedate structures dedicated to the god of business. 


Whether enrolled as a member 
of the Virginia Beach Chamber of 
Commerce during the year now 
closing or not, all business men 
and hotel operators functioning 
<m the Beach have been extended 
a cordial invitation to be present 
at the annual organization din- 
ner and business session of that 
agency to be held at the Cavalier 
Hotel on Wednesday. This body, 
which functions as the mouth- 
piece for those seeking vacation 
natronagerhas attempted to do a 
satisfactory job during the past 
year, and it is anxious to secure 
public approval for its program 
now being prepared for the year 
which lies ahead. 

A chamber of commerce, it has 
been said, can be no more ef- 
ficient nor render any greater 
service than that demanded by 
its membership. If that member- 
ship is alive to the potentialities 
for individual and community 
profit which lie in such an organi- 
sation, if it is intent upon deve- 
loping these possibilities and is 
willing to subscribe to its support 
then a piece of work of outstand- 
ing merit can be accomplished. 
But indifference will beget indif- 
ference, and many valuable op- 
portunities for development will 
he lost in the resulting apathy. 

Show your interest in the 
growth of Virginia Beach and 
your appreciation of the agency 
which is striving constantly to 
add to your individual profit by 
Attending the session on Wednes- 
day night. Your time, we believe, 
will be well spent. 

The war on the; ocean front continues at a fast and furious pace. 
Gone forever is the unbroken facade, of porches and piazzas that once 
suggested an established building line, and many are the complaints 
raised by those whose properties now rest in the shadows of projecting 
buildings that seem to press forward with an eagerness to reach the 
sea. This change and consequent warfare, barely a year old, threatens 
to alter completely all formerly established notions of where the 
porch begins, and there is every likelihood that further developments 
on the ocean front will build out to the new line. 

And this, too, we suspect, is an indication of progress. Cer- 
tainly we have no complaint to make or charge to level at those 
who have utilized each available inch of space for the accommodation 
of guests. In many instances, the remodeled fronts have added in 
large measure to the attractiveness of the ocean properties, and tlfe 
development of this aspect of Beach life has been and continues to 
be a measure of greatest moment. -

A certain sign that summer is 
on the way to Virginia Beach is 
to be had with the arrival of the 
annual encampment of State 
police recruits at the Rifle Range. 
Busy with their studies and the 
daily routine of discussion and 
lecture groups, the squad from 
which will be selected Virginia's 

Nothing amazes us so much these days as the unprecedented 
building activity lfhat is to be found all over the Beach. And. no one 
building of all those under construction has held as much interest 
for us as the palace devoted to roller-skating and bowling that now is 
nearing completion on Atlantic Avenue near Fifteenth Street. We 
don't know much about such things, but it looks to us as though 
there is enough lumber in that one building to construct a 20-story 
hotel and then almost enough wood for a winter's kindling. 

By bringing these two wholesome recreations here, -Mr. White- 
read undoubtedly is contributing a signal service to the vacation 
throngs. More, the building which houses the rink and alleys is a 
nost substantial one, a credit to the amusement enterprises of the 
.own and one which we hope will reap a just reward of vacation pro- 
fits. Enterprises of this type, which provide both recreation and 
health for those participating, appeal to us as particularly necessary, 
for such amusements have ever been in the minority on the Beach. 

Another item of importance is the faith in the future of Virginia 
Beach which Mr. Whitehead implies by his continued building. He 
apparently believes, too, ln the development of the south end of the 
Beach, and the activity which will result from his interests should 
go far toward attracting attention to a sector of the community that 
all too frequently is forgotten in considering future possibilities of 
this community. 

but it is ever a pleasure to wel 
come the earnest lads and to wish 
them well in their ambitions. 

Too, the encampment brings to 
the Beach such familiar figures 
as S. Gardner Waller, adjutant- 
general of Virginia; John Q 
Rhodes, director of the Motor 
Vehicle Division, and Captain 
Nichols, to whom much credit for 
the efficiency of the highway 
force is due. Their interest in Vir- 
ginia Beach and the efforts which 
they expend to make the camp 
a reality .are appreciated by all 
residents of this community,- and 
their friends already have taken 
the occasion to welcome them to 
Virginia's seashore capital. 

The sincerity and the skill 
which these men have brought to 
the development of the State's 
police force are reflected to the 
excellent work accomplished by 
the officers. The squad is small, 
hardly sufficient to police the vast 
area that 1b Virginia, but the ef- 
ficiency of their labors and the 
promptness with which they ex- 
ecute their duties have earned for 
the force a reputation that needs 
no apology when compared with 
other similar enforcement units. 

It is a distant pleasure to wel- 
come the recruits sad the of- 
ficial staH to Virginia Beach. 

Railroad tracks in this country 
are laid on more than one billion 
cross ties, nearly 3,00* cross ties 
being required for each mile of 
track. , 

However busy the average hotel operator or business man may 
be these days preparing for the season's opening, a good percentage of 
them— or so it seems to us— are finding time to carry on with the 
popular cigarette puzzle contest that now is nearing completion. We've 
been set upon by dozens of them— so much so, in fact, that we have 
considered the idea of establishing ourselves as an oracle, even 
though we do recognize ourselves as right faulty— and the explana- 
tions we have heard for the selection of this or that title have been 
little short at remarkable. 

Some of the last thirty puzzles, we are frank to admit, have been 
downright difficult. Borne are obviously far-fetched in their signi- 
ficance, others depend upon research in old dictionaries to gain the 
proper answers and still others take on a foreign flavor by utilizing 
words never to general use in the English language. As we write', 
we're ready to stand by all but two of our decisions, and those two, 
you may well believe, are about to drive us crazy. We've been given 
all of the popular solutions, but we are far from satisfied. 

How much of the prize money is coming to Virginia Beach is a 
question which we cannot answer, but the calm assurance with 
which not less than a dozen of our friends are laying claim to the 
$100,000 indicates tnat the Beach is about to be hit by a prosperity 
wave. In some instances, so certain are the lads and lassies that 
they're due for a windfall, the money has been spent before received. 
Imagine the pain when the winners are announced Laad-t! Elr-names 
fail to make the published lists! 

As we contemplate some of the titles supplied us by willing as 
sistants, we are forced to stand amazed at the tricks which the human 
brain occasionally plays upon its possessor. Of ( en, \ in the face of such 
proof, we challenge the widely-believed statement that man is a 
logical being, for there is neither logic nor reason for many of the 
solutions that the contestant stands willing to defend with violent 
argument. And, we would observe to passing, that Is a condition 
found elsewhere than among the puzzle workers. 

We have been requested from many quarters to appeal again 
for public co-operation in cleaning up the town nrtortn the official 
opening on May 29. On an inspection tour juadt TlT^era! days ago, 
we saw tangible evidence of a bojjft-fKK attempt made by many to 
enhance the attractions^-thwproperties by giving some attention 
to the lawns and surrounding grounds, but there also was evidence 
that rnany have not yet responded to the plea for community beautifi- 

It seems to us that a feeling of pride in one's possessions would 
be sufficient Impetus to produce the highly desired results, but we 
confess that we have not yet found the key needed to unlock the 
proper response. Maybe, should we keep hammering away at the Idea 
of- beauttficatlon. we may eventually see our hope for a clean town 
justified, and, since the price of repetition Is not a difficult nor ex- 
cessive one to pay for such an end, we are perfeeUy willing to print 
our weekly message stressing the value of such action. 

Why not do some cleaning up to the interest of the general 
good? The entire community It certain to profit from the appear- 
ance of an orderly and attractive town. 


Virginia Beach News:— 

Dear Sir; 

At long last, as Edward the 
vm would say, that august body, 
which will be long r eme mb er e d 
as the Canine-considerate coun- 
cil has discover e d, after two ma- 
jor fires entailing a tremendous 
loss, that the fire equipment at 
Virginia Beach is Ina d e quate , and 
have therefore tamed over to 
their ways and means committee 
the problem of inventing a method 
to obtain necessary funds to ac- 
quire new eq ui pme n t. The method 
this group win invent, unfortun- 
ately, will not be patentable, the 
reason being it was thought of 
before. Taxation, my friends, is 
not new, and that, I regret to say, 
is the only way such funds can be 
raised. But is it the only way? 
Since the natives were not so dis- 
dainful of my overtures in pro- 
posing the Flat Iron Building 1 , I 
take this privilege of submitting 

The Town of Virginia Beach 
last fall spent about six months 
considering the proposal of enter- 
ing the electric current producing 
business. Few a have forgotten 
power plant promoting Phillips, 
Therefore, for this reason, it is 
my belief that the council may 
consider entering another field, 
as I believe the dog-catching bus- 
iness has so far failed to pay any 
appreciable dividends. Here's my 

Ai the Council is all-powerful, 
let it purchase, condemn, confis- 
cate, steal or in some other honor- 
able manner acquire a sizeable 
piece of property on Atlantic Ave- 
nue around the vicinity of 
Twenty-fifth Street. Perhaps Mr. 
Roosevelt would grant a section 
of the Coast Guard Station's yard 
to keep down the howls for the 
sewage disposal system. This 
would be a good trade as the 
town will not get the system any- 
way. Be that as it may, let's as- 
sume we have the property and 
on the same let's build a nice 
large and modern Fire Station. In 
the front part of our station let's 
put in a nice drug store with a 
prescription department. The fire- 
men, of course, would run the 
store. This would naturally create 
the necessity of a pharmacist. No 
problem there at all. Just send 
Guy Barnes off to a school while 
the building is being erected. Roy 
is a good druggist, so why not 
make one of Guy. This store 
would be one of those twenty-four 
hour outfits. I believe a fireman 
could sleep In the back of a drug 
store as soundly as he does to a 
fire station. The police depart- 
ment cars cruise constantly hither 
and yon about the beach, so they 
can be used, without extra cost, 
as a delivery service. In case of 
fire, we will give the business to 
the existing drug stores. 

Now let's get' down to the pro- 
fit, with which we will obtain 
new fire fighting equipment. 
After the store is fully stocked 
with sundries and medicine, we 
will take the prices now charged 
on the Beach, add them together, 
and divide by four. No, that's not 
too cheap— we will still have 
plenty of profit. I venture to say 
that after a few years of operat- 
ing, our fire station will closely 
resemble the American LaFrance 
show rooms in the Metropolitan 
district. This will enable those to 
need of medicine to buy same al- 
most half as cheap as it is sold in 
Norfolk and, I believe, the pro- 
perty owners would display little 
anger in a reduction of fire in- 
surance rates. 

Another angle that might be 
well to consider, is that our pre- 
sent dry laws permit, if I am not 
mistaken, a doctor to issue a pre- 
scription for as much as a gallon 
of whiskey at a time. If such be 
the case, we will put in a nice lit- 
tle whiskey department and there- 
by not be deprived of the de- 
lights of repeal on Sundays and 
holidays. I feel sure that our doc- 
tors would co-operate. This also 
would eliminate the undesirable 
Sunday bootlegger. And it should 
be remembered that whiskey, be- 
sides its delightful influences, 
carries other things, one being a 
nTce^prwill l„am confident Mc- 
Call Frazier will bear witness to 

This proposal, as mine of the 
storm-proof Flat Iron Building, 
is merely all in fun, but the rap 
contained herein regarding the 
outlandish prices of our two drug 
stores may be to most of you a 
joke, but it is certainly anything 
else to the writer. I can find no 
plausible excuse to further pena- 
lize the property owners at this 
resort by being the sole means of 
the propaganda about high prices 
at tins resort. With the excep- 
tion of this 

on this beach are no higher than 
any other spot on earth. Make 
no mistake about this propaganda 
having its desired effects in dis- 
couraging the prospective year- 
around inhabitant In making this 
his home. And what Virginia 
Beach needs is more permanent 
dwellers. Each and every business 
on this beach is set-up for the 
Fourth of July, and this overhead 
has to be carried throughout the 
lean nine months. 

Getting back to the price of 
drugs and medicines. What is the 
excuse? Virginia Beach is no far 
distant outpost that is visited 
every nine months by the boat. 
Neither is it located on the far 
side of a pass, that can only be 
reached in deep mid-winter by 
dog team when it is frozen. But 
instead it is just overnight from 
twenty-five million people, who 
also at times buy medicine. Let's 
analyze Norfolk. There are 101 
drug stores in Norfolk and the 
population is, last census, 1930, 
127,000. A drug store, for approx- 
imately each 1,250 people. Vir- 
ginia Beach and the adjacent five 
miles that should be rightfully 
served by the two stores, has a 
population of 5,000, thereby giving 
each store a potential market of 
2,500. and three months each year 
this is raised to 10.000. You figure 
the answer. Maybe a municipally 
operated drug store is sensible 
after all. 

If all the sick people at Vir- 
ginia Beach were one big sick 
person, and all the doctors were 
one big doctor, and all the drug 
stores were one big drug store, 
and all the druggists were one big 
druggist, and all prescriptions 
were one big prescription, and all 
cash registers were one big cash 
register, and the big doctor gave 
theJmig sick person the big pre- 
scription and the big sick person 
carried the big prescription to the 
big drug store and the big drug- 
gist filled it, when the big sick 
person paid the big druggist in 
the big drug store for the pre- 
scription, the big question is, 
would the big cash register be big

Newspapers, as a rule, voice 
their own political sentiments. 
They express the|r own views, 
'diligently and honestly arrived 
at." Such exceptions as there may 
be to this rule, if they gain the 
confidence of their public, are not 
likely to hold it for long. News- 
papers that wait until they see 
which way the crowd is going, 
and then step out in front and 
attempt to assume the leader- 
ship, are as little esteemed as 
politicians who do the same 

But all newspapers hope to have 
influence in the political field and 
in other fields. They have their 
own convictions, they voice their 
own sentiments, they express their 
own views, but they hope to bring 
the public to their way of think- 
ing. Else why do they maintain 
editorial columns in which to tell 
their readers from day to day 
what they think on various sub- 
jects? in which case to espouse 
or to antagonize this or that 
cause? in which to advocate or to 
oppose men and measures, often 
very earnestly? If the purpose is 
not to make the newspaper effec- 
tive in the direction of shaping 
public opinion or molding public 
sentiment, what is it? 

Newspapers hope to have in- 
fluence in the political field and 
in other fields. But most of the 
newspapers of the country have 
little influence in the political 
field, as evidenced by the result 
of the last Presidential election. 
Which is only another way of 
saying they do not voice the poli- 
tical sentiment of the public for 
which, ordinarily, they are sup- 
posed to speak.

"Since when have the news- 
papers been supposed to voice the

Well, we will put it this way. 
which amounts to about the same 
thing: Most of the newspapers 
of the country, including Virginia, 
have little influence in molding 
public opinion to political cam- 
paigns or with respect to politi- 
cal affairs, as evidenced by the 
result of the last Presidential 
election. Few Virginia newspapers

clear and fair. The dogwood was 
in full feather; the trees were

as we frequently agree with the, 
Cavalier, it was difficult for us 
weep with him Sunday. Pessimism 
is a nightbloomtog flower; it 
shrivels in the Sun. Jeremiah 
should preach only on rainy days. 



There was a time, not so long 
ago, when it seemed to us that 
the Cavalier was right. The 
American people seemed tired and 
afraid, wiling to trade liberty 
for equality, individualism for 
security, the right to think for 
the right to eat. We saw a regi- 
mented AmeJrica, marching the 
goosestep of ordered living behind 
a modern Caesar, Cromwell or 
Mussolini. We didn't like it. The 
editor who is usually willing to 
do the proper thing as long as 
somebody doesn't order him to 
was ready to hie himself to the 
far hills and ask some hermit to 
move over. 

" But that was a year ago. Things 
have changed. The sun has come 
out. We know little of commodity 
prices, car loadings, employment 
indices and other things that the 
statisticians play with. But we do

Germany, in common with all 
central Europe, was more in- 
delibly stamped by the past war 
than we. in this country can 
readily imagine. In particular 
did the war become the major in- 
fluence in the lives of those who 
left the desks of classrooms for 
the mud of the trenches. Many 
of them were just eighteen years 
of age. Thrust abruptly into a 
struggle whose purposes they mis 
understood, they came back from 
the occupation of killing to find 
their homelands in economic and 
political chaos. 

It is to this generation that 
Erich Maria Remarque belongs. In 
his first novel, "All Quiet on the 
Western Front." he portrayed his 
generation of German youth in 
the trenches. Then followed "The 
Road Back." which dealt with its 
attempts to acclimate Itself to a 
world which had no place for the 
ideals of the pre-war era or the 
Ideals of war. And now we have 
'"Three Comrades." chronological- 
ly dated about 1928, 

In "Three Comrades," the 
youngsters have become men of 
thirty. They have given up the at- 
tempt to take up their lives where 
they left them In the rush to pre- 
serve the Fatherland. They have 
become accustomed to living from 
day to day on the fringe of society, 
making the best of their meager 
means of livelihood. No more am- 
bitions, no more ideals, no more 
illusions for them. They are con- 
vinced that "life is a disease, 
brothers, and death Ifeglns al- 
ready at birth. Every breath,

sick, and here again it is the 
stamp of the war. Undernourished 
during her youth, when the army 
had first call on food, she has 
developed tuberculosis. 

And yet the sorrow of the 
tragic end. moving though it is, 
is not so heartbreaking as the 
spectacle of the young men before 
she entered their circle. For Rob- 
ert, at least, understands what she 
meant. "Now I suddenly saw that 
I could be something to someone, 
simply because I was there, and 
that that person was happy be- 
cause I was with her . . . tt/ig love 
end yet something- ^nojpr— some- 
thing fdr~whTh one can live. A 
man cannot live for love. But for 
a human being, perhaps ..." 

"Three Comrades" suggests 
Hemingway at once, the Heming- 
way both of "Farewell to Arms" 
and "The Bun Also Rises." But 
Remarque's people are more like- 
able than Hemingway's: they 
have more humor, more dogged - 
ness, more humanity. The story 
of their comradeship and love is 
written by Remarque with force- 
ful simplicity and much power. 
The result is a novel of unusual 
depth and sincerity 

This Girl Scout, greeting /Spring 
with a smile, is typical of mil- 
lions of garden lovers throughout 
the nation. Like her, they have 
carefully tended seedlings in 
coldframe or hot bed, impatient- 
ly awaiting the time they could 
be transplanted to the garden. In 
addition to gardening on their 
home grounds. Girl Scouts par- 
ticipate in civic beautiiication pro- 
jects, such as helping to plant the 
approaches to the new Golden 
Gate bridjc in California. 

Here in Virginia where our 
young men are educated in two 

splendid military colleges and a j ' ' : — 

host of patriotic "civilian" col- i taKe ? har & e - 
leges and universities, it seems al- \ Des P«e the large attendance at 
most incredible that a million | these Pacifist rallies, 
students in the North and West 

last week attended rallies at 
which were staged violent demon- 
strations against war. and that 
many of them took an oath: "I 
refuse to support the Government 
of- the United States in any war 
it may conduct." 

Shades of our fathers! That rat- 
tling sound you hear is made by 
the bones of the Nation's found- 
ers as they turn over in their 
graves, and by the angry tremors 
of the men of '76. '65. '98. and '17. 
They never heard that the way to 
peace was to announce in ad- 
vance to any would-be aggressor 
that they would lie down if at- 
tacked, and be walked on. 

Virtually everyone in the Unit- 
ed States except possibly a few 
munitions makers ardently de- 
sires the peace to which our for- 
tunate geography entitles us, and 
soldiers are among the first to 
admit that war is now more hor- 
rible than ever before. But there 
is a wide gulf between the will to 
peace with its accompanying de- 
termination not to breach our 
neutrality and the sort of vague 
and spineless pacifism— "human - 
itarianism," if they will— evinced 
at Columbia University and some 
other colleges last week. If the 
more aggressive nations were able 
and ready yet they might accept 
such tempting demonstrations as 
an invitation to come over and 

amazing denial of things which 
were once considered both the 
duty and the privilege of every 
American youth it Is difficult to 
believe that youth is that supine. 
If it is, then the country is not so 
•safe as it was. 

—Roanoke Times. 


A farmer in Nebraska has been 
doing for himself and his family, 
for some years, what Joseph did 
for Egypt of the Old Testament. 
He stores his crop surplus in 
bountiful years and then has it 

to augment his short crop in the 
bad years. 

*"There*s no use talking," he 
explains, "we can't have good 
crops here all the time, and I be- 
lieve we should have something 
in reserve. I have always stored 
part of my crop." 

In a region which has had very 
slim harvests for two years, this 
farmer is getting ready to thresh 
gram he raised in 1934. He has 
on hand both oats and rye. He 
has plenty of stock feed, although 
many of his neighbors lack it. 

It takes determination to carry 
out such a program, just as it 
takes determination and plan- 
ning for an industrial worker in 
the city to save part of his in- 
come regularly. The Nebraska 
farmer is doing privately what 
Secretary of Agriculture Wallace 
has proposed for all farmers and 
the government to do in co-opera- 
tion — preserve an "ever normal 
granary." Perhaps it works better 
for the individual farmer than it 
would for the- whole farm group. 
The idea, however, deserves study 
rather than flat dismissal.

Lets broil them! What? You 
ask. Why most anything you have 
ever cooked in .a frying pan — 
steaks, chops, fish, chickens, 
oysters, crabs, mixed grills, liver 
and scores of other foods. Broiled 
foods are health foods, tasty foods 
and attractive foods which give 
variety to the menus, and at the 
same time cater to the main- 
tenance of health standards. A 
broiled steak does not mean a 
dry hard toughened piece of meat 
but rather a well browned juicy 
piece of meat either rare, medium 
or well done, according to your 
family's desires. The rules to re- 
member for successful broiling 

1. Have broiler unit on for 5 or 
10 minutes before placing meat 
under its heat.

Michigan -Motorists 
Attracted to State 

The Automobile Club of Michi- 
gan is the fourteenth organiza- 
tion outside of Virginia this year 
to publish a book devoted to the 
Old Dominion. The publication 
entitled "Virginia Tour^ was is- 
sued with the co-operation of 
the Virginia State Chamber of 
Commerce, which,/ furnished much 
of the information and all of the 
illustrations. The Michigan Auto 
Club has more than one hundred 
thousand members, and its travel 
director was one of those who 
were guests of Virginia last year 
on a tour of the state. 

"The "Virginia Tour" booklet 
includes pictures of Lexington. 
Natural Bridge, Balcony Falls. 
Virginia Beach, The Mariners' 
Museum. Mount Vernon, Williams- 
burg, Richmond, Charlottesville. 
Shenandoah Valley, the Caverns

Barbecues for the Modern Dinner Table 

Pungent Same* Give* 
Flavor and Zeut 

mHB barbecue, American as baked 
1 beans— old time favorite of the 
South and West— Is now enjoying a 
renewed interest. 

Just say the word barbecue sad 
the memory barkens back to tradi- 
tional outdoor gatherings and the 
aroma of wood smoke, spiced and 
roasted meat, scenting the sir for 
miles around Today we have a 
kitchenette version of the barbecue 
for the modern dinner table. 

Now. In the season of spring 
broilers, there is a popular substi- 
tute for the steer of the ranchers 
and the shoals of the southerners 
used on these gala occasions. In the 
old days a great pit was dug and 
Juicy hunks of meat whetted ap- 
petites. The barbecue Are was 
started the night before In the bot- 
tom of the pit With hickory or ap- 
ple wood, forming a bed of coals. 

Over, the top stretched a grill 
or meshed wire and the well sea- 
soned meat laid In place. At Inter- 
vals the cowman-cook swabbed the 
meat with a mltture of vinegar, 
melted suet, salt, pepper, onion, 
garlic and what not. Every barbe- 
cue master had his own recipe for 
sauce and guarded that recipe as 
sealously as his silver trimmed 

Rot today the barbecue has come 
la from the great open spaces and 
invaded the kitchenette la a sin- 
pllfled version which, nevertheless. 
has all the old-time flavor aad met 
More delicate, perhaps, hat the 
pungent nance la still the thing that 
piques the palate.

with one-quarter cup each of beet-

and a dash of pepper sauce, and 
mix sll together. 

"To serve six people you'll need 
three very young chickens, about 
one and one-half pounds sack." said 
Mrs. Angell. "Cut them In halves or

file immediate outlook for soy- 
growers is "satisfactory." 
the outlook for next fall is 
favorable." it was stated to- 

r by County Agent H. W. Oz- 
on the basis of a spring out- 
report issued by the Bureau 
Of Agricultural Economics. 

Growers were reported as re- 
ceiving good prices as a result of 
reduced soybean production in 
19366 and the strong demand for 
both oil and meal. In addition, 
the seasonal demand for soybeans 
lor seed purposes is expected to 
offset the price-depressing effect 
of a possible decline in meal 

"But-' the outlook is less favor- 
able for the latter part of 1937," 
County Agent Ozlin said. The 
bureau explains that "if produc- 
tion this year is as large as acre- 
age intentions would indicate, an 
oversupply of soybean meal might 
easily result, and meal prices 
might fall to $20 -to $25 a ton." 

Farmers have reported to the 
bureau intentions to plant 6.300- 
000 acres of soybeans grown alone 
for all purposes this year, or about 
12 per cent more than the acre- 
age harvested in 1936. But pro- 
duction, he said, wil ldepend on 
the proportion of the total acre- 
age which will be harvested for 
beans, as well as on tthe yields 

It is believed that most of the 
increase in soybean acreage is for 
beans, since the intended acreage 
for all tame hay is slightly less 
than last year's acreage But if 
hay supplies should prove to be 
short, a larger area of soybeans 
may be harvested for hay. 

Because of these variable fac- 
tors, no exact estimate of produc- 
tion can be made. With normal 
yields, however, from 34,000,000 
to 44,000,000 bushels of soybeans 
may be expected, with about 38.- 
000,000 bushels the most probable 
figure. This would be. 8,000,000 
bushels more than last year's pro- 
duction, but 6.000.000 less than 
the record crop of 1935. _, 

Official estimates of 1937 soy- 
bean production in important pro- 
ducing states will not be released 
by the Bureau's Crop Reporting 
Board in Washington, until 
September 10. and not until 
November 10 for other states.

More than 50.000 Virginians 

are directly or indirectly support- 
ed by the fishing industries in 
Virginia. C. W. Newman, director 
of research of the Virginia State 
Chamber of Commerce, points out 
in a survey of the industry, ap- 
pearing in the current issue of the 
organization's magazine. The 
Commonwealth. The value of the 
industry's product was placed by 
the State Chamber as well over 
94.000.000. as desfxibed by the 
latest reports of the TJ. S. Bureau 
of Fisheries. Tonnage of fish and 
shellfish was placed at 123.000. 

"Some forty-five species of^fish 
and seven species of shellfish 
were taken in 1934," Mr. New- 
man states. 

Value Of Industry 

"The fin fish catch of 198.000,- 
000 pounds was four times the 
shellfish catch of some 48.000,000 
pounds. The value of fin fish was i 
$1,847,000 and that of shellfish ! 
was $2,330,000. The shellfish pro- 
ducts included market oysters 
valued at $1,400,000. crabs at 
$560,000. and clams at $364,000. 
The most important species of 
fin fish according to value of 
catch were menhaden. shad, ' 
squeteagues or sea trout, croaker, 
butterfish, spot, flounder, bluefish. 
and alewives or river herring. The 
menhaden are used in the manu- 
facture of scrap, meal, and oil. 
The other species form the basis 
of : Virginia's important sea food 
industries. These comprise three 
principal groups, concerned re- 
spectively with fish, oysters, and

Is expected to be the biggest con- 
vention in the history of the Vir- 
ginia Retail Merchants' Associa- 
tion when it convenes here for 
three days on June 20, 21 and 22 

W. Y. Morgan, the seventy-one 
year old editor of the Northern 
Neck News at Warsaw lighted 
the candies May 6 on a cake 
commemorating both the seventy- 
eighth birthday of the Northern 
Neck News, and the conclusion of 
his fifty-eighth year of service 
with the paper. Mr. Morgan's first 
job. — that of printer's devil, began 
with the first issue of the paper 
of which he is now editor and 
publisher. His service began when 
he was thirteen years of age. 

Reminiscing in\the offices of 
the Virginia State Chamber of 
Commerce this week, Mr. Mor- 
gan told of the variety of duties 
of a handy man about a news- 
paper office in the days when Old 
Dobbin was the only means of 
land transportation and when the 
telegraph and telephone had not 
yet invaded the several counties 
in his area — which to this day are 
without a railroad. 

No Salary First Tear 

"I worked hard the first year, 
without any salary at all," he 
said, "and won the commenda- 
tion to the editor, who presented 
me with a present on behalf of 
the publishers in recognition of 
services. It was a check for 
$2.50, and I couldn't have been 
happier if it had been a thousand. 
In a few years I was helping the 
business manager, as well as the 
printer, getting the mail from the 
stage coach and working on cir- 
culation and trying to get a little 
money from those that owned the 
paper. I told the business man- 
ager (who was also the editor 
and publisher, circulation man- 
ager and reporting staff) that the 
money was coming in mighty slow, 
and he said if I wasn't satisfied to 
take over the job myself. I did it, 
and I've been collecting money 
ever since, and gradually accumu- 
lated the other jobs around the 
office, staying in press days to 

help the printer make up and put 
the paper to press." 

Mr. Morgan quit sending bills 
for his paper about fifty years ago. 
He says it is a much better sys- 
tem to get around and see all the 
subscribers, and while sometimes 
it takes two of three years, the re- 
sults are always more satisfactory. 
He never asks for money, he 

No Bad Accounts 

"When they see me they reach 
for their pocketbooks. We have no 
bad accounts. Everybody in my 
country has good credit and when 
they see my paper they know 
they are going to pay for it some- 
time and every issue is a re- 
minder. So when I get around the 
money comes right in." 

Although more than seventy 
years of age, Mr. Morgan visits 
all sections of his territory with 
regularity and keeps constantly 
busy attending social, relfgious 
and civic functions. Once presi- 
dent of the Virginia Press Associa- 
tion and always a leader in local 
affairs of his area, his publication 
has built up a considerable cir- 
culation among those who have 
moved from his area. He has 
developed a policy of featuring the 
work of his many correspondents* 
using only such national or state 
news as directly pertains to the 
Northern Neck. 

"Retire?" he said, "Maybe, ten 
of fifteen years from now." 


The American railroads are 
constantly engaged in research 
work to improve their equipment 
and service, according to the cur- 
rent issue of the Norfolk and 
Western Magazine. For example, 
the publication says, the rail car- 
riers have spent more than $2,- 
000,000 in the study of air brakes 
alone, and recently appropriated 
$125,000 for the testing of new 
types of draft gears. 

Nearly 400 dentists were pre- 
sent at the Cavalier Hotel last 
Monday when the Virginia State 
Dental Association met in its 58th 
annual meeting which lasted 
through a three-day period. 

The newly organised Virginia 
Beach Rotary Club was officially 
accepted into the great Rotary 
organisation last Friday night at 
a meeting at the Cavalier Hotel 
when Prank W. Evans, district 
governor of Rotary, presented the 
charter to the club. W. P. Hilton, 
of the Norfolk Rotary Club, pre- 
sented each of the eighteen 
charter members with a copy of 
the code of ethics.

Pre-School Clinic 
At Oceana Thursday 

On Thursday, at 1 o'clock, 
Oceana will hold the annual pre- 
school clinic. At this clinic will 
be Dr, Leake and Miss Ashley who 
will assist in getting children e: 
rolled and in shape to ent 
school next September. All chi 
ren who will be six years of age 
in September are not only in- 
vited to attend this clinic but are 
urged tq attend. It should be re- 
membered that the law states that 
all children entering school are 
required to be vaccinated. 

Mrs. Walter Oresham has 
charge of the clinic and at the 
conclusion of the clinic "the 
children will be given an ice- 
cream party. 

Cuba has 135,500,000 new silver 

"One need not be actutely ob- 
servant to realise mat many per- 
sons in the United States have 
impared hearing. To thousands 
thus handicapped mechanical 
aids, as well as the lip-reading 
art, render incalculable service. 
Nevertheless, it is a challenging 
and arresting fact that many 
hard-of -hearing people have neg- 
lect, rather than unavoidable cir- 
cumstances, to blame for their 
condition," states Dr. I. C. Riggin, 
State Health Commissioner. 

"A recent survey indicates that 
three million children, and a cor- 
respondingly large number of 
older persons, have defective hear- 
ing in one or both ears. And while 
the congenial type of impairment 
represents a goodly proportion of 
the affected, in the aggregate it 
denotes but a small number as 
compared to those who have ac- 
quired deafness. 

"Disease tonsils and adenoids, 
severe and repeated colds, ob- 
structed breathing, bad teeth, and 
infections of the sinuses are re- 
sponsible for many of the avoid- 
able conditions. Moreover, of the 
childhood diseases scarlet fever, 
diphtheria, meningtis, whooping- 
cough, measles and mumps can 
be. and frequently are, forerun- 
ners ;of deafness because of the 
ear complications sometimes as- 
sociated with these maladies. 
Again, accidents, aiyt foreign ob- 
jects in thenar canal account for 
many impairments. 

'"Improvement or restoration of 
hearing requires early discovery 
and prompt toeatment. In the 
early stages, particularly when 
but one ear is involved, parents of 
young children frequently have 
difficulty in readily detecting the 
presence of the condition. 

Indeed, it can be safely said 
ore than half the children, 
whose hearing now is permanent- 
ly impaired, could have had this 

nse definitely improved or en- 
tirely restored had their guard- 
ians, throug hthe simple watch 
test, from time to time checked 
the child's hearing ability. 

"Thus, while it is quite true that 
a fair number of the deaf never 
could have been helped, no mat- 
ter how much parental or pro- 
fessional consideration had been 
manifested, a vastly large number 
could have been aided through in- 
telligent observation and prompt 
medical supervision. 

"Therefore, there is no reason 

why the army of the hard-of - 
hearing cannot be reduced de- 
finitely in the future. More 

erallx applied parental co-opera- 
tion and early medican attention 
will materially assist in doing it."

"No crop in the State of Vir- 
ginia win be more seriously af- 
fected by the soil erosion than 
tobacco, partially bright tobacco, 
which by its very nature requires 
a low organic content in the soil. 
This type of soil is particularly 
subject to erosion. The principal

vice and its. largest project is 
located in the bright tobacco 
area. The importance of the con-

That bicycle riding should be 
restricted to an area si* feet in 
width on the land side of the 
walkway and that a policeman 
be employed to enforce such a 
regulation. Although it was ad- 
mitted that the presence of a 
white line could not be counted 
upon to eliminate aft of the perils 
now facing pereatrians because of 
the increase in the number of 
bicycles and the tendency to use 
the boardwalk as a speedway, the 
drawing of such, the board mem- 
bers agreed, should serve as a 
deterrent to many cyclers and so 
reduce to a minimum the possibil- 
ity' of accidents. 

The board further urged that 
the salary of the special police- 
man be raised by contributions 
from the owners of stands rent- 
ing bicycles and that such opera- 
tors be forced to carry msurance 
indemnifying those who might* be 
injured by the passing riders. It 
also was proposed that violators 
of the law be treated as other 
persons who run afoul of the law, 
particularly, those who are ap- 
prehended while riding about 
under the influence of liquor. To 
insure a minimum of such trou- 
ble, it was proposed that the 
operators be warned against rent- 
ing bicycles to those Obviously in- 
toxicated and that those disobey- 
ing this provision be penalized 
by the withdrawal of their

of Minors Is 

The sale of wine in establish- 
ments that do not serve regular 
meals will be prohibited in Vir- 
ginia after June 30. T. McCall 
Frazier, chairman of the State 
Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, 
announced this week, according 
to a news report from Richmond. 
The new regulation will, become 
effective on July 1, the date on 
which beer and wine licenses are 
renewed for the next fiscal year. 

The ABC Board will refuse to 
renew the wine permits of all 
licensees who do not serve meals. 
Chairman Frazier is quoted as 
saying, and all sandwich shops 
and confectionaries which are not 
doing a restaurant business will 
be affected by the regulation. 
Members of the board, it was ex- 
plained, are of the opinion that 
wine should be consumed with 
meals, or as an appetizer, and not 
for purposes of intoxication. 

Wine Intoxication Rare Here . 

Local merchants expected to be 
affected by the regulation express- 
ed amazement at the ruling, stat- 
ing that few instances had come 
to their attention where. persons 
became intoxicated from the 
drinking of wines in their estab- 
lishments. Few people, they 
agreed, drank more than a glass 
or two of wine at one sitting, an 
amount which produced no notice- 
able intoxication upon the drinker. 

The regulation will not apply 
to licensees who have permits to 
sell wine off the premises. Also 
after June '30, the board will pro- 
hibit 1 the sale of wine in half- 
pint or smaller quantities. 

Use Of Minors Barred 

The board also ruled that li- 
censees must not employ minors to 
dispense beer or wine after June 
30. Those who do so will have 
their licenses revoked, the board 
chairman stated. 
- Since minors are forbidden to 
purchase alcoholic beverages, they 
also should be prohibited from 
selling it to others. Chairman 
Frazier said. 

"When minors are employed to 
dispense alcoholic beverages, they 
have more opportunities to con- 
sume them," he explained. "For 
that reason, the board members 
believe its licensees would be for- 
bidden to employ youths to sell

To Develop Local Histories 

Outstanding among the Objec- 
tives approved by the council are 
several directing the attention of 
the community groups to the his- 
tory of the county's several com* 
munities. Each club will be urgedS 
to appoint a committee to un- 
cover such history as can be found' 
for the period ending fifty years 
ago, and each club member will 
be asked to write a history of 
the farm on which he or she re- 
sides. It is the hope of the coun- 
cil that interesting factual data 
dealing with the county's pro- 
gress and with \ -e 'individual 
farms will be produced as a re- 
sult of the investigations. 

Another objective of the group 
will be devoted to nature study. 
Club members will be asked to 
check the names of the different 
trees and shrubs found on the 
farm on which they reside and 
also the names of the birds found 
there. Discussions dealing with the 
conservation of native plant life 
and birds will feature the club 
meetings. Particular emphasis will 
be placed upon the conservation 
of wildlife within the county. 

Aims For New Year

Resolutions endorsing the ac- 
tion recently taken by the county 
school board to restore the salary 
reductions made effective during 
the depression years were approv- 
ed by the county teachers at a

School, was chairman of the re- 
)solutions committee, assisted by 
Miss Mary R. Kellam. of the Wil- 
loughby T. Cooke School, and 
Horace Saunders, of Oceana. 

The expression of the teachers 
favored a minimum salary for 
local teachers of $720 per year, 
the amount set by Dr. Sidney B. 
Hall, State Superintendent of 
Public Instruction, as a minimum 
consistent with a proper educa- 
tional policy. The teachers also 
went on record as encouraging 
and approving the Harrison- 
Black -Fletcher bill, which pro- 
poses a subsidy from the National

meals." Consumed at any other 
time, the board believes, taking 
their cue from another Biblical 
exhortation, "wine is a mocker." 
Alas and alack, just at a time 
-when we thought we could make 
our peace with Mr. Prazier and 
Us cohorts they give expression 
to a regulation, which prohibits 
the sale of wine in all establish- 
5 ments except those which serve 
regular meals. More, according to 
the announcement released to the 
press explaining this latest re- 
gulation, neither a sandwich shop 
nor a confectionery falls in the 
category of an "establishment 
serving regular meals," and their 
wine licenses, perforce, must be 
turned in and their business 
given to their competitor who 
Augments his sandwich and salad 
menu with plain roast beef and 
custard pie. 

Is this another midsummer's 
madness breaking out long before 
Old Sol has reached the zenith 
of his circle of the heavens? Or. 
suffering from indigestion result- 
ing from the eating of a combina- 
tion sandwich, are the board 
members venting their official 
wrath upon the purveyors of the 
treat American luncheon? Or, as 
• final question, are we to believe 
that researches conducted by the 
board indicate an occasional 
drink of wine taken in Bill's 
Place or Kandos' tends to the 
promotion of drunkenness? Come, 
come, gentlemen, let's be reason 
able, or, barring that, let's go 
back to the old-fashioned prohi- 
bition, where we could drink what 
we please whenever we please. 

The board, presumably, fears 
the return of the "saloon" if the 
sale of wine is permitted to 
flourish without such additional 
restriction. What the board does 
not realize is that the constant 
prohibition of its sale— and the 
attempts to sprag the sale of beer 
and hard liquors— can have no 
other result but to make of the 
establishment finally permitted 
. to sell these grape and malt 
beverages no more than a glori- 
fied saloon, however much em- 
phasis may be placed upon the 
serving of 'regulajr meals." This 
wine edict, as we see it. is but 
the forerunner for another such 
regulation permitting the sale of 
beer only in places of a similar 

This newspaper fought the SurT-

grounds that it constituted an as-

and because it violated the prin-

the entire ABC Act was predicat-

to the same charges, to which can 
be added another charge— that of

By presenting the Chamber of 
Commerce to the hotel operators 
and merchants of the Beach as a 
necessary part of the individual 
business of each person and or- 
ganization located here, the 
speakers at Wednesday night's 
meeting developed a line of 
thought which will merit the 
_i close study of all concerned with 
local progress. It is reasonable to 
presume that the general accept- 
ance of this thought, coupled with 
its practical development, will in- 
sure for the Chamber of Com- 
merce a permanent place in this 
community as a leader in the 
march of progress. 

Virginia Beach and its many 
resort and vacation attractions 
need a mouthpiece to tell the 
story to the State and nation. For 
each individual merchant and 
hotel man to hire skilled workers 
to present the many individual 
stories is, manifestly, impossible 
because of the terrific drain upon 
the individual pocketbooks, and 
the creation of a central agency 
equipped for/such work, sincerely 
interested in each aspect of Beach 
life, looms as the practical solu- 
tion of a problem which grows 
larger with the passage of each 

The ideal of co-operation and 
the laying aside of petty jealousies 
rapidly are becoming realities 
here. Hotels and cottages, what- 
ever their size or equipment, are 
realizing that the drawing of 
large crowds of vacationists to the 
Beach means business for all and 
sundry, for the demands of the 
visitors are as varied as the 
facilities here to be found, and 
all profit from a large Influx of 
tourist and vacation trade. To 
bring these people here, to em- 
phasize the Beach, rather than 
any individual hotel as a proper 
summer vacation playground, is 
the aim of the Chamber of Com- 
merce, and, since excellent results 
are to be seen as a consequence of 
last year's activltyjthat organiza- 
tion deserves^ wider support than 
has beep^tiven its efforts hrvpast 

reation of an advertising 
agency to handle Beach accounts, 
prepared to offer factual advice 
and suggestions for the proper de- 
velopment of advertising sche- 
dules; creation of a convention 
bureau that will work to bring 
conventions here to the smaller 
hotels and cottages in the off- 
season months; the promotion of 
an alert and active publicity ser- 
vice, and the establishment of an 
information bureau that will aid 
visitors in solving their own 
problems — these are but a few of 
the many services which the 
Chamber of Commerce has plan- 
ned for the coming year, services 
which will be extended to the de- 
gree that co-operation and sup- 
port are forthcoming from local 
merchants and hotelmen. 

The past year, with its tale of 
initial success, has been reported 
upon and removed from present 
consideration. The •future, the im- 
mediate season which lies In front 
of us, is the chief problem of all 
residing here, and to the success- 
ful solution of that problem, to 
the proper presentation of Vir- 
ginia Beach as the outstanding 
vacation resort on the east coast, 
the Chamber of Commerce is now 
devoting its efforts. To the ex- 
tent that it succeeds or fails in 
those efforts will result next year's 
co-operation and, support. 

It is difficult to feel other than 
optimistic to the prospects before 
us. Long years of depression failed 
to check Virginia Beach's forward 
advance and, now that depression 
has been largely eliminated, un- 
limited are the possibilities for de- 
velopment of this community. 
Mere support of this agency will 
not insure the desired objective, 
but it will, we assert, go far 
toward its attainment.

makes work, asks David Lawrence, editor of the United 
States News, a spendthrift government or the creative minds of in- 
dustry? The question, and Mr. Lawrence's reply, are contained in 
an editorial which appeared in this week's edition of the newspaper 
that covers the field of national affairs so completely. Because of its 
timeliness and its forceful presentation of a matter of wide public in- 
terest, we are devoting the space at our disposal- this wee k to a pr e- 
sentation of Mr. Lawrence's thesis. 
t The editorial says: 

Today in the crucial moments of conflict between political 
demagoguery and responsible individualism, we might well para- 
phrase the Scriptures and say: Blessed are the Job-Makers. 

"Who are the Job-Makers? Are they to be found in the leaf- 
raking, boondoggling precincts of the WPA? Has the $18,000,000,000 
spent in the last four years by political allocation given birth to any 
enduring industries? 

"Without detracting one iota from the humanitarian purposes 
that have motivated the national government at Washington in seek- 
ing to allocate funds for "work relief", it is a sad and tragic com- 
mentary on the shortcomings of political government that as these 
billions have been expended there has been developed in its place no 
lasting series of jobs, no momentum of job-creation to carry forward 
the artificial recovery sought by the New Deal. 

"The mistakes of omission or commission might be forgiven, 
however, if the Roosevelt Administration had not undertaken at the 
same time to belittle and disparage, if not break down, the creative 
genius of those captains of American economic achievement who have 
to their credit the most amazing record of job-making the world has 
ever known. 

"Let us start with Henry Ford. Can bare statistics describe ade- 
quately the contribution to the welfare of the common man which the 
inventor of the low-priced automobile has made to the American 
economic system? Can any country in the world point,4o the accom- 
plishments of a single production industry which rivals that of the 
Ford era of job-making begun about twenty-five yeaWago? 

Mr. Ford Gives WMespnead Employment 

"Consider the low-priced automobitewhich has placed within 
the reach of millions of men and women a vehicle of rapid trans- 

"Jobs were created at Detroit in the manufacture of the motor 

car itself. * 

Jobs were created at Akron where tires in unprecedented quanti- 
ties had to be fabricated. 

"Jobs were created in the steel mills of the Central West, in the 
accessory plants of the hinterland. 

"Jobs were created in the lumber camps of the North and the 
cotton fields of the South where materials for the body of the car 
had to be produced in quantity. 

Jobs were created on the roads from coast to coast where 
thousands of miles of new highways furnished employment to mil- 
lions of human beings. 

"Came also the competing companies— General Motors and 
Chrysler and Packard and Willys-Overland together with Hudson 
and Nash and Studebaker and all the other makers of passenger cars 
with their hundreds of thousands of jobs. 

On top of this grew an entirely separate industry— trucking. 
More men are now employedJn driving trucks than on the railroads 
of the country. Hitherto Inaccessible areas were opened up by the 
trucks to the movement of products— the exchange of goods. 

"Countless jobs were thus created, directly and Indirectly, by 
the genius of one man— Henry Ford, unaided by Wall Street, unaided 
by government subsidies. If his assets are valued at a billion dollars — 
and they are not cash but plants and equipment— why should any- 
one begrudge reward to the modest citizen who made possible so many 
man-hours of labor, to measure which would require more digits and 
groups of ciphers than could be taken in by the reader's eyes? 

Big Industries Providing Jobs For Millions 

"Who can appraise the value in gross volume of sales that has 
been given America, directly and Indirectly, through the motor car 
development which Henry Ford conceived? And not alone In our 
country have jobs been created but throughout the world where as- 
sembly plants are now built. A sizeable ocean freight in motors and 
parts adds jobs to shipping and jobs at ports of destination as civili- 
zation moves on by motor cavalcade. 

"Is such a man the foe or the friend of labor? What irony of fate 
makes it possible now for a small group of so-called labor leaders, 
combining in their political partnership to use the legislative power 
and coercive statutes, to break down the individualism of one of the 


Now moon-swept by asters 

And lacy with yarrow

As brown as a sparrow.

Down past the deep salt-marsh 
Out where the cream-lead cows 

Stare wide-eyed and halt . .

(All brittle and bursting) 
Across the fall mowing 

Now sun-dried and thirsting. 

Comes song of September 
To sharpen our dreaming. 

Aghast, we remember 
And feel autumn's scheming!

greatest benefactors human labor has ever had? 

"Can it be said that Henry Ford has not paid his labor well? 
Can Mr. Roosevelt boast of any such record of creative work with 
the billions of public funds placed at his disposal? 

"But let us turn to other Job-Makers. Just about ten years ago 
Owen D. Young and David Sarnoff and M. H. Aylesworth sat down 
together to plan the merchandising of radio sets and to develop 
broadcasting as means of selling such sets. The principles embodied 
in a radio receiver were not new but the genius which made it pos- 
sible, at relatively low cost for the American people, to buy radio sets 
and to listen free to entertainment represented a high water mark 
in American job-making. 

"Now there are thousands of retail stores selling radios. There 
are at least 50 companies manufacturing sets and 50 more making 
tubes. There are 700 broadcasting stations acquainting the public 
with the merits of all sorts of wares. And as volume of sales grows 
in all products, so do prices come down and more and more jobs be- 
come the inevitable result. 

No Parallel Achievement By Politicians 

"It is difficult to estimate the number of jobs which, directly and 
indirectly, may be traced to radio. We have not even considered as 
economic gain the benefits to the? human race of the art of radio 
broadcasting, its cultural values, its pleasures for the bed-ridden and 
the blind, its miryl-absorbing advantages to the persons who would 
otherwise be constrained to struggle in vain with the boredom of en- 
forced solitude. 

"Job-Makers, however, are to be found in nearly every industry. 
Take, for instance, the food business with the amazing advances 
made in preservation and canning and distribution of perishable pro- 
ducts. What shall we say, also, of the men in the oil business who by 
efficient marketing have been able to furnish low-cost fuel to the 
motor car owner at almost every thousand yards on the roadway and 
at every few blocks in the city? What shall we say of the genius of 
the oil processors who have made it possible today to buy gasoline at 
exactly fifty per cent less cost per gallon than ten years ago, exclu- 
sive of the billions of dollars in sales taxes collected by the Federal 
and State governments? 

"Job-Makers can be found at the head of many American bus- 
inesses. Many of them are to be found to small towns and on the 
fringe of cities, in dark plants and isolated factories, unhearlded and effective and practi 
fringe of cities, in dark plants and isolated factories, unheralded and attain some of the 
achievements is an epic of human progress unmatched in the an- 
nals of time. 

"Today the Job-Makers are in disrepute. They have become 
victims of. vicious attack. They are either "economic royalists" or 
"selfish" men charged nebulously with seeking to wield feudal power. 

"Invective can be borne by the Job-Makers. They have with- 
stood the tempests of modern competition. They have taken risks 
with their own money and the money of others but have lived to 
see their ideas triumph to all the majesty of economic prosperity. Mo 
political chieftain can point to any comparable achievement Mb 

political chieftain can rob them of their glory" written indelibly in the 
pages of our economic history. 

Gov e rnment Barriers To Job-Making 

"But it is not the thrust of ridicule or scorn that matters today. 
It is the deliberate effort of political government to squelch, if not 
destroy, the genius which brought America her great era of Job- 

"On every side there are impediments, barriers, restrictions^, 
hurdles. We see an undistributed surplus tax, camouflaged, of counar^ 
as a means of getting revenues from those who presumably wish to 
avoid payment of taxes, but mlsguidedly designed to break down the 
incentive to be prudent, to be thrifty, to be constructive. 

"What else do we observe in the haze of tyrannical government? 
We perceive at the national capital an army of buzzing parasites to 
whom industry pays annual tribute. We observe the fixers and the 
lobbyists, the fee-grabbing former office-holders suavely plying their 
trade midst the very men who have been and are the high priests of 
a political hierarchy which has been and is a disgrace to the institu- 
tion of government itself. 

"Regulations galore came out of the twisted labyrinths of com- 
missions and bureaus. Their intertwining red tape costs Industry an- 
nually millions of dollars to untangle and millions more to appease 
the bureaucratic system which envelops It all. 

Heavy Taxes Cat Profits For Workers 

"Is there a central purpose, a just motivation, a logical defense 
for all this intensification of the governing process? Is this really 
"economic planning?" IS it "planned economy"? Under the guise of 
liberalism, under the flag of public benefaction, of helping the under- 
privileged, the legions of political disciples march on adventurously, 
boldly, recklessly to bigger and bigger deficts and bigger and bigger 
figures of public debt. — 

"Taxes withal are rising to prohibitive rungs on the ladder of 
national Income. Already the cost of government— federal, state 
and local— is more than twenty-five per cent of the total Income pro- 

"Taxes, the enemies of progress— the poisons which spread their 
paralyzing disease over the whole economic system— Issue from 
political government with unabated pace. 

"Taxes that are added to the sale price have begun to pyramid 
selling prices which eventually means curtailed consumption. 

"Taxes are being extracted by 49 governments and thousands of 
subdivisions without rhyme or" reason, overlapping, duplicating, and 
wasting in their administrative costs the substance of a nation. 

"But taxes are not hurting the profits of industry as much as they 
are destroying the profits of labor. Taxes are killing initiative and 
stagnating capital that should go to job-creation. Taxes are raising 
prices and killing demand— dealing a death blow to Job-Making. ^^ 
Time To Halt Policies Of Destruction 

"Sound revision of our many tax systems can increase the 
volume of sales in America and create jobs. The genius of American 
industry has as its guage of market demand an alertness to the de- 
licate movements of price and consumer resistance. Taxes are so 
clumsily applied and so often changed as to make cost planning and 
price too often a matter of guess-work. - 

"Taxes are Imposed without regard to the economics that must- 
digest them. 

"Taxes are the plaything of the demagogue and the firearms of 
the political racketeer. 

"Taxes are the antithesis of good government when they 
diminish the total sales volume of a nation. 

"Taxes are the legitimate expenses of a country when their spread 
is a fraction of selling price and their incidence so wide as to yield,., 
the sums necessary for such benevolent purposes as are beyond dif? 
pute the true function of national and state governments. 

"How long then will the men in positions of responsibility In 
our national legislature consent to the continuation of this process of 
economic disintegration? 

"How can we call by the name of liberal such destructive policies 
as now emerge haphazardly from the New Deal? How long will the 
voters of America wait patiently for artlf ically-made jobs to replenish 
the labor-making which the Job-Makers of America were once per- 
mitted to create In billions of man-hours of labor? 

"When will the restrictive tide be reversed and the permissive 
tide be encouraged? 

"How long will the Congress of the United States crucify human 
initiative on the cross of political sabotage? 

"These are questions even as fundamental as the attack on the 
Supreme Court of the United States. For be it nine or fifteen justices, 
be it moral or unmoral to chastise arbitral institutions, the solid fact 
remains that, in the Supreme Court of Economics, the laws of ex- 
change are as inexorable as the tides that ebb and flow in the seas. 
Demand Grows For Economic Stabilisation 

"Far above the din of political battle we begin to perceive already 
the dreaded waves of devastation which one year, two yean, three 
years hence may engulf a disillusioned nation that has worshipped 
false gods. 

"The issue is a simple one. President Roosevelt's opportunity to 
lead in his second term is scarcely a half year old. But the oppor- 
tunity can vanish overnight, it can be forfeited suddenly in the chaos 
of economic confusion i\ he does not resolutely set himself to make 

e of the very reforms he has espoused, to 
has so ardently promised— at least the 
goal of a stabilized prosperity- -jr 

"For unless Mr. Roosevelt can reveal the horizons of a promised 
land, there will sweep on from the legislative branch of the govern- 
ment some day the censure of a Congress goaded to action by 
dining values in the midst of a shambles of destructive experimenta- 

"Then, as statesmanship in Congress is reawakened and reln- 
rigorated by a new sense of responsibility, will come and independent 
hiadnthlp to exalt agate the dynamic urge to Job-Making

that fresh fruit cake, so she was caught in the act. Time was when 
this might have meant quite a disagreeable session with mother, but 
those were the days when mothers spent hot. weary hours In the 
kitchen watching the Christmas fruit cake bake. Now, with the auto-

cake isn't what it used to be. Now all mother does is mix the cake, set

noted that both these kings laid 
aside their purple because there 
was a stronger and more aggres- 
sive candidate on the spot. Ac- 
cording to Carlyle's definition, the 
king is the man who can, and 
these two worthies couldn't. It is 
only in our time that we have ar-

a king who abdicates just because 
he prefers not to be king is a dis-

to discover how they came to get

now, as it never has been, taken 
fully into the confidence of those 
to whom it has delegated the au-

sick of the king business because 
he could not remain king and 
marry the woman he wanted? Or 
was he sick of it long before he

When your vital organs fall to 
perform their work correctly— 
your bowels and kidneys cant 
properly throw off that waste ma 
terial — before you realise It - 
you're growing hideously fat! 

Take one half teaspoon of 
KRUSCREN SALTS in a glass of 
hot water every morning and cut 
out pastry and fatty meats— go 
light on potatoes, butter, cream 
and sugar— in 3 weeks get on the 
scales and note how many 
pounds of f at-have vanished. 

Notice also that you have gained 
in energy— your skin is c. arer— 
eyes sparkle with more glorious 
health— you feel younger In body 
—keener in mind. The Kruschen 
Way has given many a fat person 
a Joyous surprise. 

Oet a 4-os. bottle of KRUS- 
CHEN SALTS from any leading 
druggist anywhere In America.

ruler who had the woes of the un- 
derprivileged on his heart and the 
temerity to expect that something 
should be done for them? Or was 
the King merely a playboy who 
found the pursuit of pleasure too 
much restricted by the royal 
garter? Time was when my Lord 
the King had bound that garter 
about his knee and challenged the 
world to rebuke him; Edward VIII 
laid aside all garters on his vaca- 
tion last summer, and before 
Christmas he laid aside his crown. 

Comes now Mr. Hector Bolitho 
into court with what purports to 
be the true relation of the life of 
the king who wouldn't. Unfortu- 
nately, one lays it down without 
much more certainty than when 
he took it up. Of facts about Ed- 
ward Windsor there are plenty. 
We read about his babyhood, his 
childhood, his days as a naval 
cadet, his brief stay at Oxford, 
his part in the World War, his 
journeyings to the far flung 
margins of the Empire. We are 

enough in one place to make a 
real friend. We are told that he 
was charming. We hear that he 
hated red tape, and that he was a 
friend of the ex-soldiers and the 
poor. And we are further informed 
that a breach widened between 
the young prince aria the King, 
his father. Perhaps most signi- 
ficantly, we gather that the high- 
er clergy were set to work on him, 
to tell him his duty, and to see 
that he did it. If the higher clergy 
were as tactless in their lessons to 
the prince in private as they were 
in some of their public criticisms 
of him after he fell— and as lack- 
ing in what seems to many of us 
the simpler Christian virtues, 
such as charity and good sports- 
manship—one can understand 
why Edward must have chafed 
under the discipline which goes 
far to make the head that wean 
a crown sufficiently uneasy. All 
these things Mr. Bolitho tells or 
suggests. But what we most want 
to know he leaves to our imagina- 
tion or to our ignorance. 

And so I fear we shall not be 
able to rank "King Edward VDJ" 
among the great biographies of all 
time. However, it is a readable 
book, and not at all scandalous. 
A great many persons will read it 
because it is timed so well to fit 
the occasions of the coronation 
of George VI and the wedding 
of the Duke of Windsor. And 
most readers will be pleasantly 
entertained. Historians and scho- 
lars will wait for a more search- 
ing study which is probably far 
in the future. 

We don't precisely know what 
makes the father of Louisa M. 
Alcott so important a figure for 
Mr. Odell Shepard. who, from bis 
beautiful writing must be a man 
of discrimination But, in addi- 
tion to Mr. Shepard. who writes 
Alcott'8 biography under the title. 

Will Remain Open 

The Virginia State Chamber of 
Commerce has announced that 
Carter's Grove, one of the most 
interesting old Colonial homes in 
Virginia, will remain open to the 
public until June 15 or later, dur- 
ing the absence of the owners, 
Mr. and Mrs. Archibald McCrea. 
Carter's Grove is located about 
five miles from Williamsburg on 
U. 8. Highway No. 60. It has been 
open to the public only for short 
periods each year for the last 
few years, and this year will mark 
the only protracted period during 
which it may be visited. 

Chief among its many features 
is its interior paneling and wood- 
work and its remarkable stair- 
way of master Colonial workman- 
ship. The wood used is native 
pine and the workmanship is said 
to be without equal. A group of 
hostesses will be in charge of the 
property during the period of its 
public exhibition. < 

"Pedlar's Progress," New Eng- 
land's 19th century literary great 
vastly admired this man. Bom 
on a Connecticut farm in 1799, 
Bronson Alcott tramped many of 
the Eastern states with a pack on 
his back'. On one of these jaunts 
Mr. Shepard makes him walk 100 
miles from Hampton to Yorktown, 
a minor matter, probably it does 
seem unnecessarily hard on Bron- 
son. He, Bronson, is said to have 
gotten along well with Virginians, 
though later he was persuaded by 
abolitionist Garrison that all ini- 
quity dealt south of the Mason- 
Dixon line. Alcott became a teach- 
er, a lecturer, and an ardent pro- 
pounder of transcendentalism, 
which swept New England even 
while it caused grave doubts in 
other quarters as to its disciples' 
sanity. Certainly Alcott enjoyed 
his physical, and philosophical 
wanderings; so, in spite of his lack 
of financial sense, his life may 
have been more successful than 
most. And now Mr. Shepard wins 
the Little, Brown Centenary prize 
with "Pedlar's Progress," a bio- 
graphy that cannot fail to find a 
host of admirers. 

Dr. Harry Slochower of Brook- 
lyn College pulls a deep one in 
"Three Ways of Modern Man." 
He starts out with Sigrid Undset's 
"Kristin Lavransdatter," Thomas 
Mann's "The Magic Mountain," 
and Martin Anderson Nexo's 
"Pelle the Conqueror," which we 
understand is one of the first 
proletarian novels. With these as 
examples, he unfolds his theories 
of feudal socialism; bourgeois 
liberalism, or tile liberalism of 
the cultured classes as typified in 
pre -Nazi Germany; and then 
socialist humanism, when is noth- 
ing more or less than the strug- 
gle of the underprivileged to bet- 
ter their condition. The Doctor is 
evidently that exceptional man 
who can admire the good in all 
three doctrines. This is vital 
literary criticism for the thought- 
ful, and for the thoughtful only. 

A new list of books which may 
be borrowed is now being sent out 
by the Extension Division, Uni- 
versity, Virginia, upon request.

Places among the Who's Who of 
the garden flowers are assured a 
large number of introductions for 
1936, several of which are shown 

The snapdragon, at the left, 
which has almost a habit of making 
news, has become something of a 
crusader among flowers. It is the 
leader of a battle against a flower 
killer, the rust disease. Snap 
dragon mixtures 76 percent resis- 
tant to rest were offered last year. 
They had been developed by pro- 
fessors of the University of Cali- 
fornia horticulture department and 
improved by various seed breeders. 
Scientists of the Ferry-Morse Seed 
Breeding Institute succeeded In 
developing distinct color strains of 
snapdragon, such as that pictured 
here, which are 100 percent Im- 
mune to mat Snapdragons white, 
yellow or golden orange may now

the Rose King Improved, lower

cause of its clear rose pink color. 
It produces large blossoms Which 
have golden throats. Another 
petunia with an interesting new 
color which is expected to win high 
favor is the Flaming Velvet. 

The Floral Who'a Who each year 
acquires several new members 
from the sweet pea family, and 
1936 is no exception. One of the 
newcomers Is Early Chime, upper

landers on American shores, is a 
better-than-good time to revive 
some of their foods, and serve 
some of the dishes they started on 
the road to fame. Especially since 
it's "tulip time!" By the way, 
don't think that those crullers of 
theirs should not be made except 
in cold weather. Deep-frying is 
simple when you have a frying

tow, of Oceana. Second and third

Varieties Shawn 

Hundreds of roses of all kinds, 
colors andVvarieties, exhibited in- 
dividually ^d massed with other 
flowers, transformed the ban- 
room into a thing of living beauty. 
At the end of the long room, 
stretching from side to side, a 
special assortment of 63 kinds of 
roses sram in the gardens of the 
Misses Hih -orr iynnhaven River 
was exhibited and it attracted all 
eyes. The quaint, old-fashioned 
nosegays of sweet-heart buds, 
lilies-of-the-valley and forgetme^ 
not were a joy to aU beholders and 
much interest was displayed over 
the English exhibition box, put 
on display by Dr. T. AUen Kirk, 
of Roanoke, vice president of the 
American Rose Society. This box 
is amodification of the one used 
in England and has fsix holes in 
the top, only the head of the rose 
appearing, the stems being placed 
in glass tubes or vases below. The 
box has a cover and the exhibi- 
tion can be carried without dan- 
ger to the roses. In England the 
boxes have from six to 72 holes. 
Or. Kirk said. His box was filled 
with Dr. Eckner roses, grown in 
his garden in Roanoke.

The New Stainless Steal Super Chief of Mis Saute Fe, with Ka Sweeping, Streamline 1 Design. Lower left— The 
dining car of the new train Is unusually large. Its specially designed interior, with silver and china in modem 
iied reproduction of Indian craft, Is shewn hers. Lower right— The colorful obseiWation lounge, in which 
colors of sand, co pper and turquoise nave been used for decoration, with sand 1 paintings and reproduc- 
"" tions of Navajo craft and weaving. 

PtOM the Navajos of the pictur- 
esque southwest, the Santa Fe 
drew the inspiration for the design 
of its sew stainless steel streamline 
train, the Super Chief, newest of the 
luxury trains in the west. 

The rich colors associated with 
the country through which the train 
travels have been used as the back- 
ground for decorations, faithfully re- 
producing the art and craft of the 
Navajo Indians. Sand paintings, sil- 
ver craft and weaving have bees 
skillfully combined with rare woods 
and modern design to give the tram 

all the beauty and color of the desert. 

The train was built by Edward G. 
Bndd Manufacturing Company of 
Philadelphia. The locomotive was 
furnished by the Electro-Motive 
Corporation of Chicago. 

Thronghout the train, each com- 
partment has its own color scheme 
and arrangement, and each has been 
designed so that suites may fee 
formed fey nse of connecting doors.

" Y ULETIDE" and "yule log" are 

M. terms as familiar to us in con- 

nection with Christmas as they 
were to our* ancestors. The word 
"yule" has had an amasing vitality, 
for its history stretches back beyond 
the mists of antiquity. In Medieval 
England the form of the word was 
"jrol"; in Anglo-Saxon times it was 
"geol," akin to the Icelandic "jol," 
the great mid-winter feast of pre- 
Christian days. It is probable that 
"joP is also the ancestor of our 
Word "Jolly," and that then as now 

"YuleUde" meant "a Jolly time."

Advertising properly placed, Mr. 
Labai continued, insured sub- 
stantial returns -to the hotel 
operator, and he urged the de- 
velopment of a co-operative pro- 
gram upon the members. Funds 
could be raised for the conduct 
of such a program, he said, by 
the imposition of a direct tax or 
through the co-operation of the 
Town Council and the operators 
of the hotels. 

R. Lee Page reported on the 
status of the sewage disposal sys- 
tem and urged that all residents 
petition Congressman Norman R. 
Hamilton to work for the continu- 
ance of the PWA until such time 
as the local project could be com- 
pleted with Federal asistance. 

The functions of the new ad- 
vertising agency recently develop- 
ed in conjunction with the Cham- 
ber of Commerce were explained, 
and hotel operators were urged 
to use its services in planning 
their advertising program. Pos- 
sibility that a convention bureau 
would be developed locally this 
year also was expressed.

The regulation prohibiting the 
employment of minors to sell wine 
and beer will not apply to wait T 
resses and other employees who 
are not actually engaged in dis- 
pensing these beverages. 

In the past, it was pointed out, 
the ABC Board has issued beer 
and wine permits to licensees 
whose establishments are equipped 
to serve food, but who deal chief- 
ly in sandwiches and soft drinks. 

After June 30, the board will 
not renew the beer and wine per- 
mits of its licenses unless their 

establishments are restaurants

Chairman Frazier stated. 

War On 'Wine Saloons" 

"By taking this action," he 
continued, "members of the board 
hope to eliminate the sale of wine 
and beer in places that are little 
more than "wine saloons," where 
young people and others tend to

Virginia service stations col- 
lected $14,703,000 in state gaso- 
line taxes from customers in 1936, 
thereby increasing to $124,575,000 
the total paid by consumers since 
gasoline first Was taxed by the 
State in 1923, it was reported by 
E. A. Kyhn. secretary of the Vir- 
ginia Petroleum Industries Com- 

Mr. Kyhn said that official re- 
cords received by his committee 
from the U. S. Bureau of Public 
Roads indicate that the cost of 
this one tax has increased to $14.- 
703,000, the amount collected in 
1936, from $1,537,000. the cost 
during the first year. 

The cost of the state gasoline 
tax to the average motorist is esti- 
mated at $34.99 for 1936 as against 
only $7.01 for 1923. The total cost 
was said to represent an increase 
of 10.2 per cent over that of 1935, 
when service stations collected 
$13,341,000 from their customers. 

"The state owes a debt of grati- 
tude to Its motorist taxpayers for 
contributing so generously to its 
finances," Mr. Kyhs commented, 
"and It is to be hoped that the 
state will show its gratitude by

It was Nehemiah Grew, English 
naturalist, who first announced to 
the world that no flower seed 
could develop without the union 
of the* pollen and ovule. But the 
theory was so novel that scientists 
of his time were reluctant to be- 
lieve it, and it was not until 1735, 
more than 100 years later, that 
Linnaeus reaffirmed the theory. 

The recall in American politics 
was first used during the time of 
the Continental Congress. Penn- 
sylvania's delegates refused to 
sign the Declaration of Independ- 
ence, were recalled, and other 
delegates were sent In their 
places. *

$336,000,000 was paid to Virginia 
life insurance policyholders. Life 
insurance is a very powerful stabi- 
lizing force, and I am gratified 

that so many of our citizens have 

availed themselves of its bene- 
fits. It is a tribute to their thrift 
and foresight that they are secur- 
ing more and more protection of 
this kind every year, thus adding

Hall Tuesday evening, called by 
the Woman's Municipal League of

The Social Security Board has 
urged all eligible workers who 
have not yet applied for Social 
Security account numbers to do 
so promptly to expedite the set- 
ting up by June 30 of wage re- 
cords for their participation in 
the Federal old-age benefits pro- 
gram under the Social Security 

For more than 6 months the 
Post Office Department has co- 
operated in this program of ob- 
taining applications for Social 
Security account numbers from 
workers in the fields of com- 
merce and industry. Mr. Sidney 
T. Adair, in charge of the Social 
Secu.ity Board field office in the 
Travelers Building in Richmond, 
said this week. The department's 
machinery now is operating so 
smoothly throughout the country 
tliat on the average only two days 
elapse from the time a worker 
files his application until he re- 
ceives his account number, Mr. 
Adair pointed out. 

Application Urged 

After June 30, the Post Office 
Department will, under present 
plans, be assisted in receiving ap- 
plications for Social Security ac- 
count numbers by the Social 
Security Board field office in 
Richmond, and others located in 
strategic centers throughout the 
country. More tljan 100 such of- 
fices are open now and others 
are to be opened shortly. 

"Obtaining a Social Security ac- 
count number is an important 
step irt. providing protection 
against the hazards of old-age for 
any wage earnar who might at 
a future time be entitled to Fed- 
eral benefits.'' LeRoy Hodges. 
Director of the Federal Old-Age 
Benefits of the Board, said in a 
statement given Mr. Adair. 

"Workers in covered employ- 
ments who have not applied for 
account numbers," Mr. Hodges 
warned, "may be creating diffi- 
culties in determine the proper 
amount of old-age benefits to 
which they will be entitled. Em- 
ployers will make periodic reports 
to the Bureau of Internal Revenue 
of wages paid to each of their 
employees. Account numbers as- 
signed will appear on these re- 
turns. A record of the wages so 
reported will be kept by the 
board for use whenever a claim 
based on the employee's wages is 

Report Due June 30 

"Employers on June 30 must 
be prepared to file their first 
periodic report on wages earned 
by their employees since January 
1, 1937, when this part of the 
Social Security program got under 
way. Thereafter, these informa- 
tional returns will be filed quar- 
terly. In order properly to make 
the return, an employer must 
have the Social Security account 
numbers of all his employees 
which should have been previous- 
ly reported to him by each worker. 

•Reporting on the Social Securi- 
ty account number on the infor- 
mation return due June 30, is 
necessary for proper recording of 
the worker's wages." 

Mr, Hodges directed attention 


rHILE Columbus is duly credited as tho discoverer of North America, 
it was Jacques Carrier, valiant navigator of St. Mate, Franco who first 
set foot on the mainland of the Norm American continent. In April. 
1534, forty-two years after Columbus had made his fareooa voya ge of 
discovery, Jacques Carrier act gal from St. Malo with two small shops 
bearing a total crew of 61 mew. On Jury J, seeking refuge from a i

to a treasury regulation requiring 
employers of one or more em- 
ployees on all these occupations 
covered by this part of the Social 
Security Act to file an application 
for an account number for each 
covered employee who has failed 
to apply for and secure an ac- 
count number. 

"Inasmuch as employers will 
have to make sure that every em- 
ployee has a Social Security ac- 
count number^to make the re- 
quired report to the Treasury De- 
partment, it is evident," Mr. 
Hodges said, "that the more em- 
ployees in possession of account 
number cards now, the fewer will 
be the cases in which the employ- 
ers will have to take action on 
June 30." 

All Employees Eligible 

The bureau director emphasized 
that employer-employee participa- 
tion in old-age benefits is not — 
as erroneously assumed in some 
quarters — dependent on the num- 
ber of persons working for an 

"Even if an employer," Mr. 
Hodges pointed out, "has only one 
worker engaged in a covered oc- 
cupation, that worker is required 
to apply for a Social Security ac- 
count number. This includes em- 
ployees in small establishments 
such as restaurants, drug and 
grocery stores, beauty parlors, and 
tailoring shops, as well as em- 
ployees of doctors, lawyers, and 
similar professional people. 

"Se your Postmaster at once if 
you have not yet filed your ap- 
plication for a Social Security ac- 
count number." 

Mr. Hodges urged that inas- 
much as the. Post Office Depart- 
ment's machinery is so geared 
now as to assign an account num- 
ber promptly, employees who have 
not applied for account numbers 

should at once take advantag e of 
these facilities. 

Eligible workers may file their

Motorists Warned 
Of "Speed Traps'' 

Motorists this week were warn- 
ed by J. T. Timmons, of the Tide- 
water Automobile Association 
headquarters, in Norfolk, to pay 
particular regard to speed limits 
imposed on traffic moving 
through the many small com- 
munities of Virginia, especially 
where notice of the speed limits 
is prominently displayed at the 
entrance to the villages and 
towns. "Speed traps" are being 
operated by loca¥ law enforce- 
ment officers, he said, and many 
motorists have been hailed into 
the courts and fined because of 
the violation of the. speed laws.

New Cabanas At Cavalier 

At the Cavalier Beach Club, 
sporting forty new cabanas of the 
latest style and other extensive 
improvements, all is in readiness 
for the opening. New furniture 
and decorations are found in the 
clubhouse, which will be presided 
over this year by Emil Treat, who 
returns to the Cavalier after an 
absence of several years. 

Dance music for the opening 
weeks will be supplied by Johnny

enjoyed an unusually successful 
season at the Everglades Club, in 
Palm Beach, the Miami Biltmore 
Hotel and at the Hollywood 
Beach Hotel. 

Many interesting features of the 
band will attract much attention 
during their appearance here. Pa- 
trons of the dances will enjoy the 
sparkling voice of Miss Frances 
Colwell, featured vocalist with 
Dean Hudson. Male vocals will be 
ably handled by Bud Brown and 
Sam Latimer. A vocal trio com- 
posed of two boys and a girl will 
swing out some of the rhythm 
favorites, while Harold Willis will 
offer novelty songs in an inimi-

cently with his renition of "scat" 

Glee Club With Band 

In addition to the many vo- 
calists in the troupe, attention 
should be called to two distinctive 
attractions — the Clubmen Glee 
Club and the sliding trombone 
section. Singing varied selections 
of specially arranged numbers, the 
Glee Club presents refreshingly 
modem choral work. Their 
choral work with such number as 

"Ltebestraum," "Goto* 
and Tm in the Mood for Love," 
have been highly praised many 
times. The Clubmen will also of-

Band," playing the old swing 
tunes in the arrangements used 
20 years ago when jazz was in its 

Starting two years ago, an or- 
ganization which rapidly became 
the favorite on the campus of the 
University of Florida, the Club- 
men soon boosted their popularity 
to state-wide proportions, and 
through two summer tours spread 
their fame over the entire south.

Said Sufficient to Serve Com-

Purchase of fire equipment de- 
signed to satisfy the Town's needs 
for many years to come was au- 
thorized at a special session of 
the. Virginia Beach Town Council 
held immediately following the re- 
gular meeting on Monday night. 
Capital outlay for the new equip- 
ment, including the remodelin(M>f 
the present police and fire hear- 
tens, is estimated at $24.< 
The resolution must be appn 
on a second reading before becom- 
ing effective. 

The equipment, designed and 
built by the Seagrave Company, 
will include a 750-gallon pumper 
and a "quad"— a four-purpose 
motorized unit consisting of a 750- 
gallon pumper, chemical, ladder 
and hose equipment. The present 
fire equipment owned by the 
Town consists of a 350-gallon 
pumper with auxiliary ladder and 
hose facilities. It is the intention 
of the council to have the old 
equipment renovated and used as 
an auxiliary unit in the fighting 
of possible future fires. 

To Be Delivered In Fall 

It is ant

early September c 
was stated. 

Under the provisions of the re 
solution approved by the coun- 
cilmen at the special meeting, the 
Town Attorney has been instruct- 
ed to petition the Circuit Court 
for an order permiting the hold- 
ing of a municipal bond election 
to determine local sentiment in 
the funding of an issue of $50,000 
revenue-producing bonds. The 
difference between the amount 
sought and the cost of the fire 
equipment 1 * would be used, under 
the councilmanic plan, for the 
payment of the water main new- 
ly installed on Pacific Avenue.

Butt, tournament manager, stated 
this week in outlining plans for 
the three-day session. All play 
will take place in the Cavalier 
which has donated the

the tournament. J 

New Event SclurfaledNJ 

According to the schedule, the 
open team-of-four championship 
play will begin on Sunday, at 
11:30 a. m.. with the mixed pair 
championship, a new event to be 
introduced this year, scheduled for

berg. A record attendance of 
bridge enthusiasts is anticipated

Police officers of the county 
were instructed by the Board of 
Supervisors, meeting at the Court 
House on Monday, to enforce the 
State law which prohibits beach 
fires within 150 feet of residential 
areas or home developments in "the 
East Ocean View section and 
arrest those violating the law as 
well as any persons caught de- 
stroying private property. Con- 
siderable damage has been done 
in East Ocean View as a result of 
beach fires, a delegation of 
citizens told the board, and the 
continuance of- the nuisance 
serves as a constant menace to 
the homes in the community. 

In response to an additional re- 
quest that a policeman be station- 
ed in Ocean View during the sum- 
mer months, the board instruct- 
ed Chief of Police George W. Hal- 
stead to arrange a schedule for 
the officer charged with the 
policing of the district in order 
that a greater part of his time 
might be spent in the rapidly de- 
veloping area. At the present 
time, one officer patrols East 
Ocean View, Chesapeake Beach 
and Ocean Park, working only 
during the night hours. 

WPA Project Favored 

A resolution requesting the 
State Highway Department to 
sponsor a WPA project for the 
improvement of the Glen Rock- 
Elizabeth Park Road and the 
Townsend Bridge was adopted by 
the supervisors. Approval of such 
a project, a delegation of Eliza- 
beth Park residents asserted, 
would mean a saving of sixty per 
cent of the cost of the improve- 
ments t the State and, consequent. 
ly, to the county, since a marked 
reduction in construction costs 
would result. 

Willard Ashburn, representing 

H. P. Etheridge, of Virginia 

Beach, appeared before the board 

with the information that his

Shirtless Bathing Suits Banned 
From Streets by Council's Fiai 

Immodest Female Beach Apparel Also Prohibited West of 
the Walkway; Parking Time Restrictions Set for Streets 
in Business District of Town. 

Although shirtless bath suits 
for men and one-piece suits so 
lar with women bathers will 
be permitted on the beach and 
walkway this summer as in past 
years, sweaters, jackets or robes 
"substantially covering the top 
and lower portion of the body" 
must be worn on all streets west 
of the walkway, it was ruled by 
the Town Council at its regular 
meeting on Monday night. 

The new ordinance, which be- 
comes immediately effective, 
parallels the old ordinance deal- 
ing with bathing attire in all par- 
ticulars except that it states 
specifically that shirtless suits 
and other swimming wear de- 
signed along "immodest" lines 
will not be tolerated as in former 
seasons on the main business 
streets of the Town and in its 
shops and stores. 

Fine of $2.50 Set 

Failure to comply with the law 
has been classified as a mis- 
demeanor, punishable by a fine of 
not less than $2.50 nor more than 
$50. Policemen patrolling the 
Beach have been instructed to 
see that the ordinance ^observed 
by both men and women bath- 


Live chickens and other live 
fowl cannot be kept in coops for 
more than twelve hours east of 
Atlantic Avenue, the council also 
ruled. Numerous complaints have 
been made regarding this practice 
by hotel operators, and the pro- 
hibitory statute was passed as a 
health measure. 

Parking Time Restricted 

Parking on the west side of At- 
lantic Avenue, from Sixteenth 
Street north to Twenty-fifth 
Street, will be restricted to one 
hour from June 1 to September 
15, between the hours of $ a.^m. 
and 4 p. m. Violations of the 
parking regulation, which also will 
be operative on Seventeenth 
Street during the summer months, 
will be subject to a fine of not 
less than one dollar nor more 
than twenty-five dollars. 

As assistant sanitary officer, 
whose principal duties will be to 
check on the observance of the

The cost of furnishing instruc- 
tion for the school year 1937-38 to 
the students of Virginia Beach is 
estimated at $20,952.50. all but 
$3,000 of which must be borne by 
local taxpayers, Frank W. Cox, 
superintendent of public instruc- 
tion, informed the Town Council 
this week. The budget, as present- 
ed to the council, was approved 

The local share of $17,952.50 is 
slightly higher than the amount 
spent this year, Mr. Cox asserted, 
but it is necessitated by the in- 
crease in enrollment in the public 
school system of Beach children. 
Instructional costs of high school 
students as well as pupils enroll- 
ed in the Willoughby T. Cooke 
grammer school ere included in 
the budgetary message.

Permanent Bridge for Rudee

Plans Are Discussed. 

Restoration of U. S. Route 60 
and the construction of a perman- 
ent concrete bridge over Rudee 
Inlet to replace the bridge wash- 
ed away by the storm of last Sep- 
tember are planned by the State 
Highway Department in the near 
future, according to information 
supplied the Virginia Beach News 
this week. If present plans ma- 
terialize, it is expected that the 
road skirting the ocean between 
the southern limits of Virginia 
Beach and the State Rifle Range 
will be open to traffic before the 
close of the summer season. 

The decision to reopen the road, 
according to reliable news sources, 
was reached at a conference be- 
twen Brigadier-General S. Gard- 
ner Waller, adjuctant-general of 
Virginia, and Henry G. Shirley, 
chairman of the State Highway 
Commission. Other plans, also 
said under consideration, call for 
the improvement of the road from 
the Rifle Range to the junction 
of the Oceana-Prlncess Anne 
highway, thence continuing in a 
westward direction to the junc-

Information Bureau to Be 
Located on Atlantic Ave-

Construction of the new Vir- 
ginia Beach Chamber of Com- 
merce office will be begun within 
the next few days and will be 
completed early in June, accord- 
ing to a report made Tuesday 
night following a meeting of the 
board of directors. Permission to 
erect the building on the south- 
west corner of Atlantic Avenue 
and Sixteenth Street was secured 
from the owners of the property, 
and no rental will be charged for 
■the use of the location. 

Although no guarantee has been 
given as to the time the property 
will be available for such pur- 
pose, it is believed that the build- 
ing will continue on its new site 
for several years. Should its re- 
moval be necessitated by the sale 
or development of the corner 
location, the building will be 
moved to some nearby property, 
and will be so constructed as to 
permit its moving without any 
damage to the structure. 

Committee Is Named 

A committee composed of Ed- 
ward Hardy, W. H. Terry, Jr.. and 
Russell Land were entrusted with 
the details of construction and 
the drawing of suitable plans. A 
local contractor will be hired to 
build the office, which will front 
on Atlantic Avenue. 

The building will be one story 
in height, approximately II feet 
wide by 20 feet deep. Fireproof 
asbestos shingles will be used on 
the exterior and a fireproof roof 
will be included in the plans. A 
colonial design will be followed in 
its construction, and the interior 
will be finished with knotty pine.

Influx of vacationists anticipated

will take on a decidedly bright as-

its causative factors or is a sign 
that a rather natural line of least 
resistence is being followed. 

"As a matter of fact, spring 
fever can be defeated readily if 
one will but step up to it and meet 
it on its own ground. The weapon 
usually is not a bottled tonic, but 
rather a closer attention to the 
fundamental rules coupled with a 
proper mental attitude. 

"For instance, that 'tired feel- 
ing' barring actual illness, can be 
routed by the direct challenge of 
a daily walk, by a more sensible 
approach to the food-intake 
problem, by a realization that the 
average adult requires approxi- 
mately eight hours of sleep each 
night, and by eliminating the. 
habitually excessive use of stimu- 
lants of all kinds. In fact, it is 
habit defections such as these 
that not only add fuel to the 
spring fever complaint, but de-

reflects itself at all seasons of the 
year in reduced vitality, lack of

Beach Chamber of Commerce will get underway, continuing for as 
long a period as is necessary to raise the funds required to satisfy the 
budget adopted by the organization for the 1937-38 season. The cam- 
paign, a more vigorous one than that conducted last year, will attempt 
to secure a measure of financial support from every business and 
hotel that looks to the vacationist for its profit. 

As we stand on the threshhold of the membership drive, we look 
over a field that has been picked clean by advertising solicitors of 
newspapers, magazines and other written and spoken media. More, 
if we may rely upon a multitude of reports which have reached our 
ears in recent weeks, the field has been thoroughly canvassed by out- 
side agencies which, misrepresenting themselves as the agents of the 
Chamber of Commerce, have carried away a considerable sum which 
will be spent to advertise other localities of Tidewater Virginia more 
particularly than Virginia Beach. And yet, with considerable op- 
timism, the Beach organization hopes for a generous response from 
Beach merchants and hotel men. 

Why we do not make thjg/orceful plea for the Chamber of Com- 
merce? What are the reasons to be advanced in support of its pro- 
gram and its aims? What does the "record" reveal with regard to its 
results and those accomplished by other organizations now cam- 
paigning in this area? 

First of all, it must be admitted that no business enterprise ex- 
ists here which does not rely almost exclusively upon the tourist 
trade. Without the support of the many thousands of vacationists, 
there would be no need for hotels or cottages, grocery stores or mark- 
ets, drug stores, restaurants or any of the other many commercial 
activities which flourish here wiyi such considerable profit during the 
vacation season. That premise being admitted, it is reasonable to as- 
sume that greater profits for the individual rely solely upon greater 
patronage for the resort. 

Is it possible that the average hotel operator or business man 
can, through his own efforts, carry the -advertising burden which is 
necessary to attract such an increasing patronage and consequent in- 
crease of profits? That possibility is so obviously far-fetched as to 
merit little support. Failing such a course, can the average hotel 
operator or business man expect to ride on to greater profit by hang- 
ing to the "kite" flown by more advertising-minded competitors and 
associates? Such a course may be adopted, but it cannot be recom- 

Vet, too many Beach business men have been content in past 
years to "let George do it." The burden of advertising" Virginia Beach, 
of attracting increasing throngs of vacationists to this community, 
has been the lot of a small handful, who have paid the bills and 
watched all benefit from their progressive action spread to the entire 
resort area. It was this small group that contributed the approxi- 
mate $1,700 paid to the support of the Chamber of Commerce last 
season, and, unless a wider response can be secured this year, their 
burden will be a similar one in 1937. 

Recognizing the need for a continued increase of patronage and 
the necessity of advertising the facilities existing here for the summer 
vacationist, and admitting the impracticality of each business man 
carrying the great advertising burden needed to bring his own ser- 
vices and accommodations before the traveling public, it is logical 
that a central co-operative agency which functions properly should 
receive the support of all business activity. There is, after all, little 
need for a great amount of individual promotion, for all must bene- 
fit to the extent of their facilities and services if suficient people can 
be brought here. Bringing these people here is the proper sphere of 
the Chamber of Commerce. 

Last year,, according to the record, 48,000 pictorial booklets and 
2,000 hotel and cottage directories were broadcast throughout the 
eastern portion of the United States. Individual requests for informa- 
tion were made by more than 1,800 persons, and written requests for 
data on the resort's facilities came from an additional 2,600 persons. 
A steady stream of pictorial and written publicity flowed from the 
local office through all of the past twelve months, and clippings now 
found in the Information Bureau indicate that not less than 110,000 
specific references were made to Virginia Beach in the newspapers 
and magazines of the country as a consequence of that publicity 

la return for this service, which was conducted on an all-year 
basis. Beach residents contributed $1,700 from their individual purses 
and $1,800 through Town channels. A pitiably small amount, in- 
deed, for the waging of such a campaign, and equally small when 
considered in the light of results obtained. But this was a beginning, 
the origin, we hope, of a steadily advancing information and pub- 
licity organization which will continue to carry the story of Virginia 
Beach with increasing emphasis throughout all of the country in 
forthcoming years. 

During the early days of the present season, a record of activity 
is presented that dwarfs that accomplished last year. To date, using 
the months of April and May as a basis for calculation, there has 
been received by the local office a total of more than 800 inquiries 
on resort facilities from more than forty states and several Canadian 
provinces. Although the means are not available to check up on all 
these inquiries, there is evidence that many of the people have either 
visited the Beach or made reservations for future periods. Whether 
or not these people would have come here without the aid of the 
Chamber of Commerce is an unanswerable question: that they have 
come gives testimony to that agency's effectiveness. 

Such results should prove of sufficient impetus to guarantee 
strong support for this season's program. Some slight increase Over 
that secured last year already has been vouchsafed, but there still 
remains a large amount of money to be collected. The tragedy back 
of this picture of little support, if one is looking for tragedy, is found 
in the tale of what could be done if a maximum support were forth- 
coming. Limited funds produce a limited response: increasing those 
funds brings an Increasingly large response. Thus it is that the ef- 
fectiveness of the organization's work is limited only by the support 
accorded to it by those who profit from its services. 

There Is a group of persons on the Beach who contribute re- 
gularly to outside agencies but who refuse to become associated with 
the local Chamber of Commerce. To these people, we would address 
this one observation: by contributing to the support of outside units 
who promote the Beach as an incidental factor to their own city, they 
unquestionably are receiving some return; how much greater return, 
however, may be anticipated from an organization which has as its 
sole purpose the promotion of the Beach! Once again, if proof of this 
statement is desired, there is always the record, and we are quite 
happy to abide by its decision. 

Support of the Chamber of Commerce by each and every bus- 
iness here should be, not a matter of charity, but a sound and prac- 
tical course of procedure. This organization aims at the continued 
profit of each business by inducing to come here each year many 
thousands who, in the past, have turned their vacation steps away 
from Virginia Beach. It functions, not in the interest of any single 
hotel or group of hotels or businesses, but for the Beach as a unit, 
believing that the business of each mast profit from the greatest pos- 
sible influx of visitors. This work is done reasonably and. we believe, 
intelligently, the program developed along lines which seek the great- 
est good for the greatest number. 

In closing, we assert that support of this organization is a com- 
munity concern which must be shared jointly by aU who seek a 
livelihood here. Too long have we tied our kites to others' strings, and 
the day has now"aTTtveor when we* -must co-operate, mutually shar- 
ing the expense of such procedure, or find ourselves passed by other 
similar communities which have .learned the lesson which we are

The idea of it is to bring the

Prussians have already closed 
their desks and gone out to get 
jobs in textile factories, coal 
mines, book shops and what-not. 
Two months later they will be 
back at their regular posts— full, 
no doubt, of a deep fellow-feeling 
for the man at the bottom of the 

In theory, the idea is swell. In 
actual practice, it probably will be 
pretty much of a dud. For the 
one thing that erring man cannot 
do, is to find out what it feels 
like to live on a lower rung of the 
ladder by going slumming. Lifting 
yourself by the bootstraps is 
child's play by comparison. 

What is it that gets on the 
worker's mind and makes him 
dream of a fairer and more de- 
cent world, anyway? The mere 
fact that he has to work with his 
hands to earn his living by the 
sweat of his brow? Not at all. 
That has been humanity's com- 
mon lot ever since men came 
down out of the trees and shed 
their tails. No man fit to be call- 
ed a man feels abused because 
he has to work for his living. 

The real trouble is psychological 
— a feeling of helplessness, of in- 
security, of being adrift in a world 
where all of your best efforts, 
your fidelity and your industry 
may not avail to save you. You 
may be frugal and industrious be- 
yond all measure; if a depression, 
a war, a decline in foreign trade 
or some fool's monkeying with the 
currency closes the factory where 
you work, you are out of luck and 
there is precious little you can do 
about it. 

That is the sort of thing the 
man on the top can't get next to 
by a mere process of working for 
two months on an assembly line. 
That feeling of insecurity never 
will put its icy fingers on his 

In the back of his mind must 
always be the knowledge that he 
is in this only for a little while. 
He will return to security when 
his two months are up. Short 
rations are no hardship when you 
know there is a big chicken dinner 
waiting for you a little later. 

A sympathetic understanding of 
the troubles of the man at the 
bottom is something that can't 
be taught. Unless you have come 
up from the bottom yourself, or 
have been born with the necessary 
breadth of imaginattonand sym- 
pathy, you dweU foreveV in an- 
other world. Slumming, parties 
may salve the conscience, but they 
mean very, very little.— Ports- 
mouth Star. 

like the pieces of a jig-saw puz- 
zle in the effort to chart a path 
of escape from taxation for men 
who have every reason in the 
world to give liberal support to 
a government that has enabled 
them to get rich. * 

The Federal government at this 
very time Is prosecuting a suit 
against Pierre S. du Pont, finan- 
cier and member of the rich pow- 
der family, and John J. Raskob, 
who managed Al Smith's cam- 
paign for President, charging 
that they evaded tax payments 
by means of fake stock transac- 
tions and thus mulcted the gov- 
ernment of the neat sum of $1,- 
800,000, which the government 
contends- was properly chargeable 
against them as income taxes. 

In the case of Raskob, it de- 
veloped that he had paid no in- 
come taxes for the year 1930, al- 
though he was rated as one of the 
wealthiest mem in the country 
and his stock transactionjs for 
that year totalled many millons 
of dollars. He reported a total in- 
come for 1930 Of $799,181.94 but 
claimed deductions amounting to 
$867,236.54, thus more than off- 
setting his taxable income. The 
government charges that the al- 
leged losses on which these deduc- 
tions were based resulted from 
fictitious stock transactions be- 
tween Raskob ond du Pont. 

To cite one specific Instance of 
the "cross sales" on which the 
alleged losses were based, the gov- 
ernment claims that on Novem- 
ber 13, 1929, Raskob sold du Pont 
stocks valued at $4,606,000 and 

bought from him $4,582,750 worth- 

These were repurchased on* * 
January 6 following, Raskob pay- 
ing du Pont $5,989,500 and du 
Pont paying Raskob $5,989,500. In 
listing the original transactions, 
which occurred following the 
stock market crash, the prices at 
which the stock were allegedly 
sold were substr acted from their 
peak prices before the market 
crashed and the losses established 
on this basis. Thus the two men 
were able to write off their de- 
pression losses against the gov- 
ernment and later to recover their 
stocks at current market value. 

Whether the government wilV^ J 
succeed in establishing its claim 
against these wealthy capitalists 
in court remains to be seen, but 
it is doubtful to say the least. The 
difficulty seems to lie in the fact 
that the tax laws are so studded 
with exceptions, exemptions and 
technicalities that a smart lawyer 
can usually find a way out for his 
wealthy client. Apparently the 
only remedy is to enact tax laws 
that are free from such loopholes 
and are applicable to all alike. 
The average American could not 
and did not try to unload his de- 
pression losses on the government. 
Why should men of great wealth 
and wide influence be permitted 
to do so?— Northern Virginia 


A favorite pastime of many of 
our wealthy citizens is studying 
the various methods that can be 
employed to evade the tax collec- 
tor. Exemptions, exceptions and 
other loopholes in the tax laws 
are studied and fitted together

(A Review by Alfred Buff in 
McEwen, Instructor in Eng- 
lish, University of Virginia). 

The title of Knut Hamsun's 
latest book has such an air of 
finality about it that many critics 
have supposed that the authur 
intends it to be his last effort. 
However, a perusal of "The Ring 
Is Closed," fails to substantiate 
any such motion. Though the 
story is complete in itself, the 
chief character, who is the typical 
Hamsun protagonist, with a touch 
of the autobiographical about him, 
still lives at the end; and even 
his further adventures might con- 
ceivably be the material for an- 
other narrative. We predict that 
the saga of the Hamsun hero is 
yet to be concluded. 

The essential strength of Ham- 
sun's writing is that it is the re- 
sult of accumulated experience; 
even the reader unfamiliar with 
Hamsun's history feels that the 
incidents that comprise the story 
are those which the writer must 
have sometime known at first 
hand. Hamsun, born in an Isolated 
Norwegian community, early be- 
came a wanderer on the face of 
the earth. For a long while he was 
a hobo in America, supporting 
himself occasionally by the labor 
of his hands, but more often by 
the nlmbleness of his wits. He was 
a drifter, content to see. to know, 
and to do nothing save that which 
was necessary to keep flesh and 
spirit together. It was a queer 
quirk of circumstances which 
saw a man raised to the rank of 
winner of the Nobel Prize for 
Literature a comparatively short 
time after he was fired from the 
lowly position of street-car con- 
ductor of a Chicago tram-line. It 
was as if his years of wandering 
had been an unconscious prepara- 
tion for the profession which he 
inevitably fell into, that of writ- 
ing distinctive, authentic novels 
about the people and the life he 
had known. 

'The Ring Is Closed" deals with 
the career of Abel Brodersen, who 
was tie son of a lighthouse keep- 
er, once a sea-captain. The boy 
had nothing in common with his 
miserly father or his drunken, 
consumptive mother. Consequent- 
ly, starved for affection and the 
companionship of his equals, he 
was moved to seek his fortune at 
sea. Rebuffed by circumstance 
and his own shortcomings, he re- 
turned periodically to his home 
town, where he became entangled 
with the lives of his former 
schoolmates and acquaintances. 

As a character Abel is at once 
Intriguing and infuriating. He is 
a wastrel, a drifter, a ne'er-do- 
well and a bum. Often in the 
course of his life, once by an in- 
heritance, at other times by the 
efforts of a woman, Abel is raised 
from the gutter to a position of 
comparative affluence in his little 
world. But he throws his money 
away on worthless friends, and 

rejects the love of one woman 
who would have slaved for his 
happiness.. He wastes his money 
on Lull, who is a slut, and on her 
sottish husband, the boastful Alec: 
and he would have been finally 
content to eke out a sordid ex- 
istence in a dirty hutch by steal- 
ing canned salmon from box-cars, 
had not fate intervened. On each 
occasion when he hits the down- 
ward trail, the reader says: 'Let 
the fool go hang;"; but neverthe- 
less follows with avid interest the 
succeeding events in Abel's 
career. Adulterer, thief, and mur- 
derer though he is. there is some- 
thing about him which causes a 
mature mind to suspend judgment 
on him— perhaps because he be- 
longs to another world, a border- 
land unknown to us. 

One feels that the romantic 
mystery with which Hamsun ,'iur 
rounds his characters and incid- 
ents is more true to life than the 
starkest realism. We feel the 
breath of a large intelligence in 
every page of his narrative. The 
amoral point of view, the insist- 
ence on beauty in nature and the 
animal side of human existence, 
one senses to be the result of a 
deliberate, reasoning observation. 

If Hamsun has a meaning, a 
purpose, it is to show that a 
meaning and a purpose are un- 
necessary adjuncts to life, that the 
forces that drive mankind are in- 
dependent of man's patterns of 
morality. The imaginative beauty 
of Hamsun's prose is like the lily 
of the field in that it is the na- 

if there can be such a thing 
as too many Southern novels, it 
would seem that authors are now 
setting out to write them. Cer- 
tainly the Southern scene is 
somewhat crowded with gallant 

over the place, no matter how 
heartily we sympathize. One of 
the newest semi-conventional 
novels is about Richmond from 
Secession night to Appomattox; 
and Virginians whose ancestors 
displayed their fire or spent their 
doggedness in the defense of the 
Confederate capital will be in- 
terested, as will be Richmonders 
at whose very doorsteps the action 
lies. . And, there are occasional 
flashes of startling reality that 
have .little to do with the two 
romantic mesalliances around 
which the story is built. Mr. Dow- 
dey is a young writer who admits 
"my regret is Virginia: my en 
thusiasm is Virginia as it once was 
(he believes it different from the 
Virginia of mint and roses); and, 
I suppose my real ambition is 
Virginia." Whether or not his 
book will make a ripple on the 
pond of literature— it probably 
won't— certain scenes in "Bugles 
Blow No More" may strike a re- 
sponsive chord. And. in all fair- 
ness, be it said that many a worse 
novel, of whatever section, has 
gained its author a hearing. 

Under Gladys Hasty Carroll's 
handling, .a successful love story 
turns out to be another good novel 
of the Maine soil; for though the 
characters.^Margefy and Luke Gil- 
man, move to New York and Wis- 
consin, Miss Carroll's truest ef- 
forts are reserved for those parts 
which concern the New England 
farms. There is an even tenor to 
Miss Carroll's work that allows 
very little for bitterness, but when 
she ventures into criticism of the 
professorial life (somewhat be- 
tween being a farm boy and being 
a farmer, Luke arrives at a pro- 
fessorship) she becomes fairly de- 
vastating, and with some justice 
at that. "Neighbor to the Sky" is 
the title. 

Norwegian Trygve Gulbranssen 
continues the lives of Oag and 
Adelaide, who first appeared in 
"Beyond Sing the Woods," though 
another volume called "The Wind 
from the Mountains." The new 
book should be read purely as a 
continuation, for whatever of 
. richness there is in the second 
volume, it derives from the first 
which is a master-piece of con- 
temporary heroic writing.

Virginia Beach Forges Ahead 

Virginia Beach is not only a summer resort. It is a community 
where more and more people are constructing comfortable year- 
round homes. Virginia Beach is definitely forging ahead. 

SO. too, is the National Bank of Commerce. The Virginia Beach Of- 
fice has outgrown its building. Preparations are being made for 
the removal of that office to 2016 Atlantic Avenue, on June 1st, 
1937. The lobby, the officers' quarters, the clerical department will 
be considerably larger. A writing room is being fitted up for women 
customers. New counters of the friendly, or grille-less, type are 
being installed. 

Altogether, you will enjoy transacting business at this attractive 
new office, if you find this more convenient for you than any of our 
four other offices.

Rifle Range property. 

Traffic Detour Planned 

During periods when the range 
is being used for target practice, 
an traffic will be halted at the 
junction and sent around the Rifle 
Range property rather than 
through the firing zone. The roads 
under consideration recently were 
accepted in the secondary sys- 
tem of highways upon the request 
of the military board. 

Development of the highway 
from Virginia Beach to the junc- 
tion of U. S. Route 17 would be a 
decided boon for Virginia Beach, 
it was asserted, since It would 
cause to come through the Town 
a large part of the North-South 
traffic during the fall, winter and 
spiring months. A considerable 
mileage saving also would result 
from using this route, it was said, 
together with the elimination of 
delay in passing through traffic -

94 Per Cent of Grants to Vir- 
ginia Farmers Are in Good 

A fraction under 94 per cent of 
all Federal Land Bank of Balti- 
more loans to Virginia farmers 
were in good standing, with no in- 
terest or installment payments de- 
linquent, at the end of the first 
quarter of 1937. compared to 81 
per cent at the same time in 1936. 
Charles S. Jackson, president of 
the Bank, announced this week. 
These figures include land bank 
and land bank commissioner 

This condition reflects an 
optimistic outlook for agriculture 
arid indicates that trfe general 
farm situation is considerably im- 
proved, in Mr. Jackson's opinion. 
He said that apparently more in- 
terest is being taken in farming 
and in owning farm land, and the 
fact that the U. S. Bureau of 
Agricultural Economics price in- 
dex figure of all commodities that 
farmers sell increased from 105 at 
the end of the first quarter last 
year to 128 at the same time this 
year means that farm income has 
increased considerably. 
Gain Is General 

For the Baltimore district as 
a whole, including Pennsylvania 
Delaware. Maryland. Virginia. 
West Virginia and Puerto Rico, 
loans in good standing increased 
from 82 per cent the first quarter 
last year to 93 per cent this year. 
while for the entire United States 
the increase was from 81 to 87.2 
per cent, indicating that the im- 

(provement is not confined to any 
one state or district. Mr. Jackson 

As of April 1. $192 700.00. repre- 
senting 50 loans, were outstanding 
throughthe Princes Anne County 
NationW Farm Loan Associaation. 
of which 96 per cent were in good 
standing, according to Mr. F. R.

Seashore State Park, near Cape 
Henry, will open Tuesday for the 
1937 season. The recorus show 
that this park drew an attendance 
of nearly 18,000 persons during 
the 1936 season and was second 
among, the six state parks in this 
respect. The commission is expect- 
ing last year's figure to be great- 
ly exceeded during the coming 

A -modern restaurant and store 
is now being constructed and will 
be ready for service about July 15. 
Facilities* for light lunches, 
groceries, etc., are established. 

Seashore Park has six cabins, 
electrically-equipped with lights, 
ranges and hot water heaters, and 
are located on sand dumes ad- 
jacent to the water frontage. All 
cabins were booked for the com- 
ing season shortly after the close 
of the 1936 season. The demand 
for cabins at Seashore has been 
considerably greater that at any 
other park. It is probable that the 
commission could keep fifty or 
more cabins filled continuously 
during the summer months if they 
were available. 

Picnic Shelters 
Seashore has picnic shelters, 
with open fireplaces and protect- 
ed drinking water. These facilities 
make the park ideal for family 
picnics and also for larger out- 
ings by civic organizations, 
churches, fraternal organizations 
and the like. 

The park covers 3,400 acres and 
has two water frontages, one on 
the Chesapeake Bay and the other 
A collection of lakes and creeks 
known as Lynnhaven Inlet, Broad 
Bav Linkhorn Bay and Crystal 
Lake. In addition, there are two 
fresh water lakes of small acre- 

Persons of all ages may bathe 
at Seashore Park at all times In 
safety, as there is a gently shelv- 
ing beach on the Chesapeake Bay. 
which offers opportunities for 
many forms of aquatic sports and 
fishing. There are ten miles «pf 
driving trails and fifty miles of 
foot trails, of which twenty-five 
are marked. These trails lead to 
beautiful sand dunes, cypress 
pools and to trees covered with 
Spanish Moss. 

The park has the added ad- 
vantage of being near Virginia 
Beach, with its fine resort facili- 

Other state parks are: West- 
moreland, near Montress; Dou- 
that, near Clifton Forge; Hungry 
Mother, near Marion; Fairy Stone, 
near Baseett, and Staunton River, 
near South Boston. 

Tte Virginia Conservation Com- 
mission at Richmond. Virginia, 
has just published an Illustrated 
booklet covering all the parks, 
which is free to interested parties. 


Forestry officials blame care-

She was not put on trial a third 

But her son was, on the charge 
that he had accepted much, pro- 
bably the greater portion of this 
money, which he had spent in 
high living. He was given a short 
prison term and was set at liberty 
a year ago. Meanwhile, Mrs. Hop- 
per applied for a pardon. Her ap- 
plication has been turned down 
by the pardon board. Probably it 
should have been. But why was 
the son punished so, lightly? It 
was shown at his trial that he 
benefited chiefly from his moth- 
er's peculations. That the jury in 
his case should have been so lit- 
tle moved by the spectacle of a 
healthy young follow living in 
luxury off of money stolen by his 
mother, who was serving a pri- 
son sentence for crime, is inex- 
plicable. But then, the same may 
be said of the verdict of "twelve 
good men and true" in many other 
cases. t "

tor, in the determination to pur 
chaw the engines finally agreed 
upon. Growth of the Town and 
the constant increase in annual 
revenue, it is believed, will offset 
any expressed fear that taxes 
would be revised in order to take 
care of the added expenditure. 

Generally, insofar as could be 
determined this week, local opin- 
ion appears to be favorable to 
the purchase of the equipment. 
It is expected that the -new en-
